There is no software solution (programs) that can recreate a true compass. The best they can do is utilize GPS to guess at which direction you are facing when you are moving. As soon as you stop, no GPS in the world can tell you which direction you are facing. You need a HARDWARE compass built in.Thanks for the prompt reply.
Information: Nokia "Maps" has GPS and a small (General direction Compass)- works on my phone with built in GPS. No internet connection required (for the boondock sites with no cellphone tower.
Google earth also works but must have Internet connection.
Several programs are available for "Compass"
Hi, is it possible to have this run on a Windows Mobile phone with built-in camera & a external bluetooth GPS receiver?Yes I'm trying to make it work on as many phones as possible but remember that most Nokias don't have an inbuilt compass (neither any blackberries), so you would need to enter a manual compass heading. Not sure when they will be released, the android is next. The best bet is to get an iPhone if you do this for a living and need it now.
Hi Alan,DishPointer Pro has been released for Android phones today. Check out the Android Market - it costs about $20 or 15 british pounds...
Still the same this morning. I could really use this app for my parents dish re-location, but I guess I will have to do it the old fashioned way.I made it for Android 1.5+ but checking out the purchase screen on the Android Market, I get the same error on my HTC Hero, "the requested item could not be found" even though it shows up on the search results. This doesn't happen with the Droid.
I'll try to email Google, it must be something with the Market.
