Field Compass is a powerful and simple magnetic compass app, with all the information you need on one clear screen. This easy to use Android compass app has a unique sighting screen to take and store bearings to help keep you on track.

NOW with selectable new Holo dark themes.

The app shows your heading on an analogue compass, together with a digital centre panel displaying your heading in degrees.

Your compass heading and bearings are referenced to True or Magnetic North. You can also adjust the Declination for your current location.

Record up to three compass bearings using the three middle buttons on the top tool bar. The bearings can be displayed around the compass and can be used to get a three point compass fix. ICS compatible with no menu options.

Can be used in a marine environment for sailing, boating (now includes pitch and roll fields)

A great compass to use when hiking, hill climbing, walking or for general outdoor navigation and map reading training.

Anyone interested in Orienteering should download this compass app as a backup compass.

    The only serious compass application which works correctly (at least, for me). Thank you.

    Does NOT work good on the old DroidX 2 phone. Sensors in phone R not very good for any compass. :-(

    Compass is not even remotely accurate. Off by 20°

    I don't have a lot to say but be sure to download this compass. I have dealt with many compasses in my life and most digital ones don't keep my attention long but so far this is a good one
