    Hi, my wife wants a compass app on her phone (I think this is so she knows which way to walk to the most expensive shops, and becuase her friends with iPhones have them :D).... as it appears that there is not one on the SGS, can anyone reccommend the best one to download?

    I presume that they are all as accurate as each other, but are there any that have any nice additional features?

    Thanks for your help

    Smart compass is a good one too. I like it when you hold the phone perpendicular to the ground it shows what your heading is.

    You think your wife has problems...... mine uses it along with SatNav just to navigate the car out of the garage. :D

    Seriously, another vote for Compass.
    Not only does it show six different compasses and four different backgrounds but at the top it shows your position by name then underneath a Lat&Long co-ord, Notes (req 3banana Notes) but a very good settings where in the notes you can also add Altitude, Direction, Address, Location & Speed.

    Thanks for the tips... she downloaded Compass - and now it appears that the real reason she wanted it is that she has seen a new house that she wants and she wanted to see which way the garden faces !!! :eek:
