Universal Compass is a compass, that can point to any location you want. (It also points north.)
Create new locations you want to point to by either entering the coordinates manually or selecting them on a map. Finally choose an easily recognizable color for each location.
After creating your locations, select which of them you want to display on the compass. Longpress a location in the list to edit/delete it.
The map supports simple search functionality and a "My Location" button in the top right corner. If a location can't be found, try adding city and/or country to the query.
By default, Universal Compass will use your network location to figure out where other locations are in relation to you. When the distance to a location is smaller than the current accuracy allows, Universal Compass will try to get a GPS signal. You can also choose to always have GPS enabled in the settings.
Saved locations can be exported to an xml file and imported. Exported files will be saved in /sdcard/UniversalCompass.
NOTE: When your device is connected to a PC via USB: Due to a bug in Android you may have to restart your device for the exported files to become available on PC.
NOTE: Due to the method of calculating the orientation of the device, the displayed compass bearing can be inaccurate while the device experiences acceleration.
- Location: necessary for calculating bearing to other locations
- Vibration: give user feedback when selecting a location on map
This app uses the Google Maps Android API v2, which requires the following permissions:
- Network access: download map tiles from Google Maps servers
- View network connections: check the connection status in order to determine whether data can be downloaded
- Read Google services: allows the API to access Google web-based services
- Write to external storage: cache map tile data in the device's external storage area
