Handy GPS

Last updated: Dec 2016

This app was designed to perform all the functions of a dedicated hiking GPS. It displays your location in UTM or lat/lon coordinates, has a "goto" function, an odometer, a magnetic compass*, and displays a map of stored waypoints and your track log.

This is a popular app for hiking, bushwalking and other outdoor uses. It has now been downloaded to more than three quarters of a million devices, and is available for the top three smart phone operating systems: Android, iOS, and Windows Phone.

HandyGPS for Android also includes a version of the app for Wear. This was developed as a stand-alone app for the Sony Smartwatch 3, which includes its own GPS receiver. The app also will also work on other Android Wear watches such as the Moto 360 if they are paired with a phone.
