    Perhaps this app works ok, but I cant figure it out. Compass not even close. Off by up to 180 degrees depending on use. Sun rise and sun set locations the worst so doesn't appear very useful. Directions from my current location off by 30 - 45 degrees. Would never trust it at an unknown location.

    Program is installed and launches without troubles. Sensors calibrated (high accuracy). But it doesn't show a proper sun location. Dawn is shown in absolutely opposite direction. And all the day through sun in not where it's showing. I would like to use this app but at the moment I can't.

    I love the way this app works. Recently started using this app and look forward to upgrading soon as I want to tie into Google Earth klm imports. This will help tremendously. Thank you for making it Adam!
