    Yes, same here. I tried various skymap-alternatives too, but none work satisfactorily. Too inaccurate. The problem is with the phone. The A85 doesn't have some hardware sensors like gyroscope, which would have made skymap work perfectly. Gyroscope isn't mandatory for skymap, but would have really helped in apps like skymap.
