    Hello Everybody,

    I'm looking for an App with the following function:

    After entering target gps coordinates, the app leads me to the target. But I dont want to use a map for navigation. I would rather like to have a compass view that shows me the direction and distance to the target.

    I have found some apps that can do this (e.g. MotionX GPS), but these apps contain too much additional function (like maps functionality). I only want the described use case be covered by the app. Does anyone know such app?

    Hope my explanation makes sense, let me know if something is unclear :)

    Thank you,
    Sebastian

    I saw an article the other day that mentioned Compass+. I didn't go into all the details but is sounds like what you want.

    It's an iPhone app, but should work with the iPad with the usualy caveats.

    The iPhone app "Way Home Finder" does exactly what you are looking for.

    Just search in google

    "way home finder itunes" and the first hit is the app.

    Have Fun!
