Heads Up Compass is an augmented reality compass display. Using the video feed and camera sensors, the Heads Up Compass creates an integrated display with bearing and locational information on top of the live image from your camera. Heads Up Compass allows you to see and accurately determine sightings directly on your screen. Heads Up Compass allows you to take photographs that are overlayed with the integrated display information. Never use your phone with Heads Up Compass whilst driving or in control of machinery.
