This wonderful fully-featured compass is the next step up from our popular Compass Lite. Compass uses the built-in GPS in the device to show your heading, speed, latitude and longitude and where North is in relation to your heading on a variety of stunning backgrounds. To establish a heading, you MUST BE MOVING to use it! .
Compass can now store locations called WayPoints and integrates those WayPoints with Google Maps and BlackBerry Maps!
****Compass v.1.2 Upgrading Notes for the Bold 9700, 9650 and Tour 9630****
Upgrading your Compass on most models is seamless BUT, if you have Compass for the BOLD 9700, 9650 or Tour 9630 OS 5.0, PLEASE READ THIS FIRST!!:
Due to unforeseen circumstances, you will have to DELETE the version of Compass for the Bold currently on the phone BEFORE you load the upgraded version. This means that, regrettably, you will lose any stored information including your WayPoints. If you wish to retain your stored WayPoints, you will have to re-enter them manually if you choose to upgrade. Be sure to write them down BEFORE you delete the old version. We apologize in advance for the inconvenience.
If you would prefer to keep your stored WayPoints and not enter them manually, please do not install this upgrade.
If you choose to upgrade, you will be prompted for your Activation Code. Be sure to write it down so you can enter it when prompted.
These instructions only apply to Compass for the Bold 9700, 9650 and Tour 9630; all other models are unaffected.
*** IF YOU HAVE A COMPANY PHONE ***
Please note: On installation, Compass tries to automatically set the Permissions it needs. There are two permissions that Compass requires: access to the Location Data AND access to the Security Timer Reset permission to allow the screen to stay lit. If your phone is under the control of a BES administrator who sets the policy of what can and cannot run on the phone, your company phone *may* appear to lock up. Please contact [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] if you experience this behaviour. We can swap you over to a version that doesn't require this setting.
Be sure to check our website for more information, including FAQ and disclaimer information at blueinc.ca
