The application supports:

  • Coordinates are WGS-84 and can be display on the device map.
  • Three coordinate presentation formats: Decimal degrees, degrees and decimal minutes, degrees/minutes and seconds.
  • Either use the device hardware generated readings, or enter your them manually (from GPS and/or compass.)
  • Enable the abilty to correct the device compass headings (e.g. based off a hand compass.)

 

 

Notice:  The device compass (as with all compasses) is sensitive to it’s surroundings, and easily confused by the metal of vehicles and/or buildings. Vehicles totally mess with compass readings, so do NOT trust any reading for within a vehicle. Unlike GPS readings that have levels of accuracy, compass readings do not and so the application cannot verify them. If at all possible capture/verify readings using a handheld compass.
