NavELite, a global provider of backlit magnetic compasses, has unveiled a new NavELite Compass smartphone application available for the iPhone, iPod and iPad. Inspired by the NavELite Wrist-Worn, Backlit Magnetic Compass, the NavELite Compass app provides basic compass functionality using the iPhone’s magnetometer. There are two lighting modes showing a daylight (white) face and needle and an “illuminated” (blue-green) face and needle that simulates the electroluminescent technology. The magnetic heading is displayed and the compass dial can be rotated to orient the iPhone to the direction of travel.
The NavELite Compass app is now available for download for free through iTunes. It is compatible with the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation) and iPad. It requires iOS 4.3 or later.
