Then this is REALLY the app for you!

- mark your current position for where you left track or for a call-around/sighting/on-top
- enter a variation so you can enter all tracks in Magnetic but the pattern is still oriented True North on the map
- enter distances/speeds in: nm / sm / km / yards
- view bearing & distance to CSP from current position
