The present learning application was specifically developed to explain to the users virtually everything they should know about such important piece of navigational equipment as compass, concentrating on both gyro and magnetic types of compasses. The application contains information about the compass variation and deviation plus gyro error.

Note that they are first clearly explained in the theoretical section of the program and then some practical application is demonstrated in the calculator section. the users are enabled to perform calculation of the heading directions from map to compass and from compass to map, i.e. in both directions and for both types of compasses covered. You should also note that these calculations can be used not only for the learning purposes but also in real life cases.

One of the most practical features of this application is that the results of the calculations do not only show the output values; the calculation process itself is detailed to allow better and easier understanding. The theoretical part of the application is instructive and informative so shall be treated as a very good reference - the material is arranged in nine easily accessible sections. Install this application on any of your android-based devices and have a good and effective training.
