** NOTE: the 3D Compass and Augmented Reality portions of this app make use of your device's compass. Some devices (HTC One V, HTC Desire C, etc) do not have a compass. The Maps and Details portion will remain unaffected. I do not ban any devices from installing this app, as some people have more than one device, such as tablets without cameras, or compasses, and I will gladly refund users if the app is not working for them.

    Great knowing where the sun or moon is gonna be in the sky or just popping up at any given time or any location.. Awesome when scouting for or having the perfect location already plotted out for that great sunset picture...

    Great app. I've used it quite a bit at work. The map feature is what I use the most. The ability to get your location,lock the map, and drag the bearing line to your desired point is excellent. This has helped me greatly in orienting myself while establishing localized control and setting aerial targets. The distance is fairly spot on. If you're a land surveyor, you really need to get this.

This app makes it a lot easier to predict where to put the shade to handle the various positions of the sun throughout summer. The map view is very handy for initial planning and overall awareness of the "big picture" around my house, but the augmented reality is a great tool to have when actually plac
