Description

This APP uses the latest World Magnetic Model from the National Geophysical Data Center, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to calculate the magnetic declination at a specific latitude, longitude, elevation, date and time. It is being provided here, as an alternative to the website based NOAA Magnetic Declination Calculator, to enable you to determine the magnetic declination information if you are unable to access the internet from your current location.

As an example, simply enter the latitude and longitude in degrees decimal (e.g. Toronto 43.653584, -79.384033) where a negative sign is required for south latitudes or west longitudes. Enter the elevation in meters then push the Calculate button. The declination is in degrees decimal relative to earth's rotational true north.

The GPS WIZ app uses this same WMM calculation method to determine headings between waypoints.



A new "My Location" button has been added to permit direct locating of your current position on a map. Your latitude, longitude and elevation will be automatically calculated for you and entered into the magnetic declination calculation. Note: This new feature requires a one-time low cost in-app purchase.


iRate has been added to encourage users to rate the app. It appears every 10 days or after every 10 uses of the app. Once rated it stops appearing. If you select "No, Thanks" it will not appear again.

Location services have been improved for the "MyLocation" feature.

This upgrade will ensure accurate automatic calculations of magnetic declination for your current position.

Ratings and Reviews

Doesn't access GPS data?!?!

fpsurgeon

Astonishingly, this app requires MANUAL input of lat/long! Why not just access the GPS data from the iPhone? That doesn't require the internet, only a view of the sky.
