3D Compass Plus: the mix of online maps and augmented reality

Author: Vladimir Brown

3D Compass Plus combined with GPS and maps will become a great helper for those who are going to visit an unfamiliar city or area. Users appreciate 3D Compass Plus simple and intuitive interface and a plethora of useful settings.

One of the most useful features of 3D Compass Plus is the capability to determine the current location of a user. Once you install the app on your device and enable GPS, it will automatically detect your location with an accuracy of a couple of meters.

In addition to the ordinary display of the device on the map, the feature of autorotation in the same direction as the compass is implemented in the program, which greatly simplifies the process of navigation.

The compass itself is shown on the screen as an object of virtual reality. There are several compass viewer modes in the software:

  • compass rose (classic movable disc);
  • marine compass (several arrows attached to the compass rose);
  • artificial horizon (a device similar to those installed in airplanes).

And another useful feature is the capability to take a screenshot (or record a video) of your location. In just two taps you can get an image with full data on your location, as well as share it via other programs (VK, WhatsApp, etc.).

How to work with 3D Compass Plus?

After installing the app on your device you have to grant it a number of permissions to:

  • photo and video recording;
  • recognize the location of the gadget (turn on GPS);
  • in some cases, grant access to the file system.

Now 3D Compass Plus will show you where you are at the moment and then you can start using it: change the settings, choose the compass type, check the view angle and other parameters, use the camera zoom, publish your location on Instagram or other social networks and much more.
