Map-n-Compass is a specialized app designed for those interested in Orienteering and Amateur Radio Direction Finding navigation sports. The app is designed specifically for individuals and groups interested in learning and practicing these outdoor navigation sports. If these navigation sports are not your passion, then this app may not be for you.

This app is about getting outside and learning to navigate:

Map-n-Compass is designed to help you develop the skills needed for Orienteering and Amateur Radio Direction Finding navigation sports.

The beginner skill level lets newcomers learn without frustration. Intermediate and advanced skill levels provided progressively more challenge.

Groups with multiple iOS devices running the app can hold informal practice sessions with minimal cost and effort. The map, the compass, courses, controls, and results recording are all supported within the app. Assorted "streamed" street maps are available within the app, or custom maps can be downloaded and displayed within the app, and a small sample map is provided for illustration.

o Help is available within the app - just swipe up on any available overlay or button to access specific help.
o Universal - the app is fully functional on iPhones and iPads with GPS.
o The app works even on "deactivated" devices lacking cellular network coverage. (Streamed maps and email will not be available without network coverage.)
o GPS data is digitally filtered to enhance position accuracy.
o Results files contain track, overall results and splits.
o Course and Results file sharing by email or iTunes file sharing.

o Leg lengths and GPS locations of control points can be displayed for courses you create or download.
o Courses can be created on a PC or Mac running freely-available satellite photo software, then exported and downloaded to the app by email or iTunes file sharing.
o Courses can be created within the app and then shared by email with others using the app, or tweaked on a PC or Mac.
o Results files can be displayed and "animated" in free Earth satellite-view software to "relive" the experience - and combined with the results of others to see locations over time.


o Beginners can see their location on the map, and receive distance and direction hints
o Intermediate level users get fewer hints.
o Advanced level users get no help from the app aside from a convenient paperless map, map rotation support and course display.
