German Grid Ref Compass - Your Grid Refrence App!
App will operate internationally, but the "Grid Reference" information is intended for use in Germany, using German Maps. App includes a graphical guide to the Gauß-Krüger coordinate system.
Ideally suited for use by walkers, hikers and outdoor sports enthusiasts. It is recommended that you should always carry a map and physical compass when on outdoor pursuits.
For best results, use in a flat position, not an upright position. Much like a traditional compass. Use in an open space, where possible, away from trees, buildings and sources of interference.
The screen can, optionally, be set to stay on, for continued on-screen display of Grid Reference information.
