nCompass is a fully-featured compass with a customizable compass-face that will serve your every compass need - whether you are just trying to find your way back to your car, you are part of a search and rescue team looking for a lost child, or even if you are a military forward observer about to call in an artillery fire mission or F-18 air-strike.

** This app is designed only for the GPS-enabled iPhones 3G/3GS/4. **


Your location can be displayed in a multitude of coordinate systems:
* Latitude/Longitude (in Degrees:Minutes:Seconds, Degrees:Decimal Seconds, and Decimal Degrees formats)
* Military Grid Reference System (MGRS)
* Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM)
* US National Grid (USNG)
* Google Map

* True North
* Magnetic North
* Custom North (can be set to current location or a location chosen from the map)

Customizable Compass Face
* You may choose any picture from the camera roll or take a new picture and use it as the face of your compass. Perfect for putting your organization logo or a picture of your favorite person.

Potential Uses:
* You want to be able to know what direction you are going in your car and also want to be able to see a picture of your loved one at the same time. Mount the iPhone to your car windshield and set the compass face to your favorite picture.
* You are going to an amusement park and have just parked your car in a huge lot with thousands of other cars. Set your custom north to your current location and the compass will always point you back to exactly where your car is.
* A child is lost in the woods and your search and rescue unit is tasked to comb a certain quadrant. Use the UTM coordinate feature and compass to ensure you are exactly where you need to be.
* You are in the mountains of Afghanistan and discover a Taliban stronghold. Use the true North compass directions and your location in MGRS format to call in a polar fire mission or air-strike.

** This app is designed only for the GPS-enabled iPhones 3G/3GS/4. **
