A simple marine compass : move your phone in all positions, and the compass will always stay parallel to the floor !
This app has support for 3D themes meaning that you can select another kind o style of compass, including other interesting objects such as the aiming cube or the XYZ arrows.
Marine Compass can also display your location using GPS. In that case latitude and longitude will be displayed under the heading display.
It is also possible to extend Marine Compass with the optional augmented reality plugin, which will display the camera preview under the compass..
This compass app has no ad and does not require permission except LOCATION for the GPS feature. Enjoy !
Long tap on the compass will display the settings screen.
*** READ THIS PLEASE ***
accuracy depends on the hardware, please use a calibration tool designed for your device whenever the displayed direction seems wrong or not accurate.

Needs to be able to set magnetic offset
Excellent job in 3SOME. Works like charm on Desire 2.2
Black background with current compass would be nice. How do I make a theme/skin I know its easy like zip some pictures together and rename it
Heading displaying not working now
Cool, very smooth, but doesn't prevent the screen from locking
Great app to have from travel.
