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.

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.

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

    When I switch it to True north or vice versa nothing changes. Ne'er mind, my other compass apps off G.Play perform that simple feature, where optioned, no problem. So this one got itself uninstalled. Bye bye and good luck. ADDENDUM: Many thx for the quick and informative reply from the Dev. I'm sure the advice could help others. Accordingly I have upped rating to 4 stars. Good luck.

    I have found this to be a great compass application on the devices it works on, my galaxy tab is one of them. It makes finding bearings easy and accurate.

    I compared it with my compass and found it to be very accurate. It's nice to have on hand. Since I always have my phone, I'm never without a compass either.
