 +==== Compass ==== 
 +Allows to choose either built-in hardware compass or GPS-calculated azimuth for orientation that is essential for map rotation and the compass screen. 
 +  * **Hardware compass** - more suitable for slower speeds, e.g. walking, as it does not require movement to detect direction unlike GPS.\\ <WRAP round important>​ Mobile hardware compass is very sensitive on nearby magnetic metals and may display malformed values in their close presence, e.g. magnetic flip-cases or steel steering bars. </​WRAP>​ 
 +  * **Orientation via GPS** - more suitable for car navigation due to magnetic components in the car that can affect performance of the hardware compass. 
 +  * **Auto-change** - shifts bearing automatically between hardware compass and GPS according to pre-defined critical speed. ​
  
 +==== Use true bearing ====

 +Sets navigation by true bearing instead of magnetic bearing. ​
