GPS Compass is a small but complete navigation tool, it leverages on both magnetic compass and GPS to give you always the most accurate information available.
GPS Compass shows you distance and direction to geographical location (waypoint) you can define in many ways.
GPS Compass calculates relevant points position by bearing and triangulation then saves the points as waypoints.
You can see the waypoints on a map or you can use the map to define waypoints for navigation.
The Basic version is limited in the number of waypoints you can define, it allows you up to 30 points.
GPS Compass is the basis of the shortcoming Regatta application that adds a lot of feature for sail race navigation.
A pdf version of the user manual can be found here:

    Works for me! Potentially very useful capability to mark a new waypoint on map by taking two bearings on a distant object or landmark, but if using the magnetic compass function you have to be very careful with phone alignment to be sure of getting an accurate convergence point of the bearing lines. I have had successes and failures, I think the further apart are the two points from which bearing

    This app does not correctly take phone orientation into account. It managed to fool me while I was location scouting and I needed to establish true directions. If the phone is relatively flat like you would hold a compass, it can freak out and give false directions. Investigating further after some of my scouting photos were off by quite a bit in direction, I determined this app gave wrong res
