Not just any old magnetic compass, Northern is a sophisticated navigation tool, combining multiple sources of directional information, displayed side by side. This powerful feature lets users cross validate and compare their results. Our dual compass display is shown alongside Google Maps, providing a single, simple, focused interface, designed from the ground up to more effectively orient users within their environment. More reliably locate North South East and West, or even better, select a destination from our map - Northern will then display an arrow that locks onto these coordinates even while you move from one point to the next.

Northern is Great for ...
... wanderers ...
... those with a poor sense of direction ...
... people who like to explore, know where they are, but not necessarily require a fixed rigid set of directions.
Northern uses Google Maps displayed right below our compasses. Users can toggle between terrain, satellite or hybrid modes. We've also integrated Google Places, letting users quickly search for any destination with only a few taps.
Fun sharing features, including a scavenger mode, let users leave scrambled messages for one another - just find the location to unscramble. Collapse
