• gpsCompass displays where you are heading in motion, not which direction you are facing – nothing can.
• there are outstanding Apple iPhone OS bugs with altitude – this affects all GPS apps
• gpsCompass does NOT require 3G or any network connectivity to do most of its features. Only reverse-geolocating (human readable name from Lat/Lon) requires it. It works great at sea!
