Some words from users who love this app:

Outstanding App! Works magnificently on my Samsung Galaxy S II. Tried the FREE first and donated in less than 15 minutes. No Ad's now too YAY! Keep up the great work Dev.!

After a couple of days of testing, I made the donation - not that the ads bothered me. I love free software, but I feel guilty about not paying for something that is so well conceived, comprehensive, easy to use and reliable. I agree that this should be in the editors choice list.

Excellent on HTC Desire. Got me off a foggy mountain. Regular new features from Dev.

Works well. In HTC HD should hold phone vertically to get correct compass reading. May be reason others have complained.
