3D Gyro Compass – Accurate and stable tilt-compensated compass

[App] 3D Gyro Compass

3D Gyro Compass3D Gyro Compass : Combines accelerometer, magnetometer and gyroscope sensor data with state-of-the-art AHRS algorithm to create fast, accurate and stable tilt-compensated compass that simply needs to be experienced with own eyes.

The app utilizes Rightware’s leading Kanzi framework for smooth rendering with HW accelerated 3D graphics. There are two different themes to choose from: traditional style “Adventure” and modern “Marine”.

As a bonus, Marine mode contains a damped string suspension with modeled physics for rough conditions. No matter how you move the device, the compass ball just seems to be magically floating in the air.

Download and share freely. If you’re interested, the sensor fusion algorithm is open source and available under LGPL license (contact us for more information).

The algorithm requires all three movement sensors. Some fairly modern devices in the market do not include gyroscope (for example, Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1).
Marine mode ball compass is supposed to be viewed from side, not from top. Directions seem opposite if viewed from top.

3D Gyro Compass user reviews :

Use of 3 sensors increases accuracy, complex coding, openGL architecture, among the best compass apps if not the best.
Excellent To the reviewer that says this reflects magnetic north, that’s exactly what the app is supposed to do! And it performs splendidly. I actually want to take it flying and see how it performs compared to an aircraft compass (which is not gyro stabilised by design). I’d like to see a vertical line going down the screen so that you could read it with reasonable accuracy if that is possible in a future update, please. Thanks!

Very nice! I think most people who say it displays the wrong direction don’t know how to read it. The “N” is actually on the south side of the marine compass. That’s the way it is supposed to be so that when your device is pointing north, you see the “N.” Not a problem with the app. Also, a widget would be really cool. Just a little floating ball I could place on a home screen. I’m sure battery drainage would become an issue though. Thanks!

Works great. Awesome graphics Wow. Not only does this app work but the graphics really pop right out at you. Like having a real compass in your hand. Like seeing visual reactions not just numbers like most other apps.

Almost amazing The gyro integration means this is highly readable at sea but the actual compass is too much form over function. The classic view needs horizontal phone, the modern view needs the phone to be at an angle to see any markings. Add more detailed card and/or numbers, mirror the card to cover 360° of the globe so it can be read from below.

Great app Works great on my galaxy s4. Had another compass app & couldn’t get it to work, kept freezing. No problems with this one. Love the nautical themed skin as well.

the best most accurate compass I have found on the market sofar, my magnetic sensors are inaccurate and unreliable for a compass but this app stabilizes my compass in all directions
