Augmented reality app that uses your phone camera and adds a layer of geographical information such as Compass orientation, GPS position and different phone inclinations.

You can use your camera to take pictures and display them on Google Maps in one click. Geographical markers can also be added anywhere and will also be shown on Maps.

A triangulation feature helps you calculate distances and heights.

IMPORTANT : Tab users, this has not been designed for nor tested on any TAB device. DONT download it if for any tab (if you do, don't complain)
GALAXY TAB try with compatibility mode

To calibrate your phone's G-sensors, try Settings > Display > Calibrate G-sensors

** For accurate triangulation when using the GPS, give it a bit of time to get an accurate fix. Wait a few seconds after you move until the figures are stable. When measuring angles, be VERY accurate. A few degrees make a big difference on distant objects. Don't forget that the limitation here is your GPS sensor accuracy, which is about 10 meters. Short distance calculation will therefore be unaccurate.
Height calculation will return a good value on any distance as the inclinaison sensors are much more accurate.

*** When a picture is saved, it's path Alias is displayed. It starts with 'external\'. When looking for it, 'sdcard\DCIM\Camera' is a good place to start.

**** Currently working on KML support to interact with Maps and Google Earth
