Irish Grid Ref Compass - Your GPS Grid Reference Finder App!
App will operate internationally, but the "Grid Reference" information is intended for use on the Island of Ireland, using Ordnance Survey Ireland or Ordnance Survey Northern Ireland (OSNI) OS Maps. App includes a graphical guide to the Irish National Grid.
Ideally suited for use by walkers, hikers and outdoor sports enthusiasts. It is recommended that you should always carry a map and physical compass when on outdoor pursuits.
For best results, use in a flat position, not an upright position. Much like a traditional compass. Use in an open space, where possible, away from trees, buildings and sources of interference.
The screen can, optionally, be set to stay on, for continued on-screen display of Grid Reference information.
Share your Location Information / Grid References via Text Message, Email, or Tweet*
Compatible with handsets that feature GPS and Compass hardware. You may have to grant the app permission to use this information.
* - Internet Connection, and correctly configured Text Messaging, Email app, required to fulfil. Tweet Functionality will either use the official Twitter App (if installed), or proceed to Twitter.com in your web browser.
