Orienteering Compass is the only iPhone compass designed specifically with the sport of orienteering in mind. Practical and energy efficient(*), it is well suited to backpacking, hiking and mountaineering.

Featuring multiple realistic views, this elegant tool behaves just like an oil-bath mechanical compass equipped with a locking outer-ring…

(*) Designed to work without GPS and in Airplane Mode.

Features
1. Outer-rim is a protractor that rotates just like oil-bath compass
2. Protractor can be locked, and stays locked
3. Compass needle responds to magnetic north
4. Day and night views
5. Designed to perform correctly in airplane mode (GPS disabled)
6. No cellular signal nor GPS signal required needed
7. Accurate rulers graduated with 2.5 inches and 6 cm (Based on iPhone @ 163 ppi)
8. No setting. Pick it up, it works
Since the Orienteering Compass performs equally well with or without Global Positioning System enabled, it can be used to simulate a physical protractor compass used under similar conditions. While it is not intended to be used during orienteering competitions, it certainly makes a great and realistic training apparatus.

Its minimalistic and intuitive interface makes it an ideal learning and teaching tool, complete with rotating protractor and glow-in-the-dark appearance.
Since it is designed primarily around the stringent needs of orienteering (accuracy, readability, no setup or preferences to fiddle with, protractor and rulers, no cellular signal), it makes it a perfect compass for outdoors activities such as backpacking, hiking and trekking. The simple fact that it runs in “Airplane Mode”  allows Orienteering Compass to be a low consumption, energy efficient application.

    There is a whole debate about that compass on AttackPoint (people who actually use the Orienteering Compass). http://www.attackpoint.org/discussionthread.jsp/m

    Elegance meets simplicity. Loving it.

      You don't mean to say you actually rely on the iPhone Orienteering Compass app while backpacking, now do you!!?

      • Cindy F.

        No I don't. I have a plastic one for that. But if I loose it, it's like peace of mind. I know that I have one in my phone that will work in a cave and not suck my battery.

        If I can't dial 911, I still want the compass to work!
