The perfect companion for your next outdoor adventure. Seek, find, record and return home with Handy GPS. This app is a powerful navigation tool designed for outdoor sports like hiking, bushwalking, tramping, mountain biking, kayaking, boating, horse trail riding, geocaching. Its also useful for surveying, mining, archaeology, and forestry applications. It’s simple to use and works even in the remotest back country since it doesn’t require network connectivity. It allows you to work in UTM or lat/long coordinates so you can even use it with your paper maps.
* Shows your current coordinates, altitude, speed, the direction of travel, and distance traveled in metric, imperial/US, or nautical units.
* Can store your current location as a waypoint, and record a tracklog to show where you’ve been on a map.
* Data can be imported from and exported to KML and GPX files.
* Allows manual entry of waypoints in UTM, MGRS, and lat/long cords.
* Can guide you to a waypoint using the “Goto” screen, and optionally sound an alert when you’re getting close.
* Has a compass page that works on devices with magnetic field sensors.
* Automatically computes the local geoid offset to improve altitude accuracy
* Supports the worldwide WGS84 datum along with the common Australian datums and map grids (AGD66, AGD84, AMG, GDA94, and MGA). You can also use WGS84 for NAD83 maps in the US.
* Shows GPS satellite locations and signal strengths graphically.
* Can display simple or MGRS grid references.
* Can compute waypoint-to-waypoint distance and direction.
* Includes an optional timer line to record walk duration and compute your average speed.
* If you have a Wear smartwatch, a stand-alone watch version of the app will also be installed.
* Thoroughly tested by the developer on many off-track walks
