Instructions

First find the magnetic deviation or declination for your area using an aviation map, Google, trial and error, or use the Calibrate button under the adjust menu. After you save that, you lay your phone flat to get a compass reading which is displayed at the bottom of the screen. Notice the reading, then move your device in a figure 8 pattern and then look at the reading. You just calibrated the compass. I've seen readings off more than 25 degress, when I've forgotten to reset the compass. Wuts @ Free is only as accurate as the GPS and compass informaiton. Now point your phone to an interesting object. It may be a building, a mountain top, a fire, etc. Hit A. It will save the coordinates until you move loactions to a different angle. You can even end the application or shut off the phone. Your A coordinate is set. Once you get to whatever your B location is, calibrate the compass again, point the phone and hit B. At this point a Google map will come up showing a map of what you pointed to. If you hit the back arrow, you can see the exact coorinates of C that the program calculated.

Details
  • You can change the background color, miles or kilometers, and save it under the Adj menu.
  • There are 2 calibrations that need to be done: Calibrate the declination (which is saved) and calbrating the compass/li>
  • You can manually enter the declination and it will be saved.
  • The program makes a sound everytime the GPS coordinates are updated. You can turn this off under the adj menu.
  • Do not use this program while driving for legal and safety reasons.
  • The distance between B and C will be displayed to the right of button C. You must hit the back button if you are on the map screen.
  • Try to keep your device away from metal or other electronic devices that may interfere with the compass reading.
Hints

When you calibrate the declination, you point your device grid north to point A. You are pointing your device towards the North Pole with your point A in front of you. The numeric value shown is the number in feet away from point A's longitute. You should walk East or West until this value is at 0. Push set and make sure you point your device to A while doing so. The declination correction value will adjust your compass to grid north.

Quirks
  • If the declination if off, your map will still appear with your interesting C point will be shifted clockwise or counterclockwise. The distance away from you would still be correct.
  • If the GPS is off, the distance will be off, but you should see the general area.
