Notes

  • IMPORTANT – Please ensure that Settings / Location Services / System Settings / Compass Calibration is switched ON. The app’s 3D view will not work without it!
  • The compass accuracy depends on having an undistorted magnetic field around your device. If you use it close to metallic objects or electrical equipment, directional accuracy may be impaired.
