Compass for Maps Adds a Compass to the iOS Maps App

By Jason Fitzpatrick on August 10th, 2011

Compass for Maps is a simple iOS addon that adds in a compass bearing to the iOS Maps app.

Compass for Maps replaces the basic blue location indicator with a compass bearing. Rather than simply see a blue dot when referencing yourself on the map you’ll instead see a directional indicator. Compass for Maps requires a jailbroken iOS device and is available from the Big Boss repository via Cydia.
