1. The compass acquires your location in real time. Then you can share your location by SMS or by other apps. A built-in phone book of fire departments will be shown if your current location was considered to be in Taiwan. These phone numbers were integrated with Taiwan's 911 system to receive SOS message from SMS.

2. Coordinate conversion tool supports several common coordinate formats in Taiwan. It also supports Taipower geocoding, which was marked on most utility poles in Taiwan.

NOTE!! No warranty about the accuracy of compass and positioning. Please be aware that this app is not intended for critical or high accurate measurements.

1. This app was evolved from compassnavi (https://github.com/jengyic/compassnavi) open source project.
2. Taipower geocoding conversion was inspired from Sunriver's online publication. (http://www.sunriver.com.tw/grid_taipower.htm)
3. Other coordinate conversion was ported from http://cog.myweb.hinet.net/CoordinateSystem.htm
