This is truly a great product and a small taste of the high quality sim that WOTA will be. I’m pumped for this sim, Can’t wait! Keep up the great work Mark, 5 stars well deserved :)
Excellent !! No space shuttle or nasa product can beat this compass!! Thank you so much to the developer.
This gyrocompass is like the one on my dredge boat built in 1944 works like the real one love get this
When I set sail in my U-Boat, I always like to bring along a compass. It's handy to have for navigation as well as plotting torpedo solutions for any merchant ship that might happen along. In the past I've always used a physical compass, be it gyroscopic or magnetic. But those depend on physical phenomena like such as the earth's magnetic field and axial rotation. In this day and age, who can depend on that? This app requires neither -- at least as far as I can tell. All you need is 178MB of space on your iOS device and a source of electricity to recharge. Plus, at only $.99, every member of your crew, from the lowliest swabbie to your First Mate, can afford to have his own!
This is but a small taste of a masterwork 5+ years in the making. Yet this "small taste" illustrates beautifully tne ultra-exquisite detail that has gone into "WOTA: U-96" both outside, with the graphics *and* inside, with the mechanations of the spacepiece itself! Go on, zoom into the compass's spinning dials. Deeper .... Deeper .... Look at that detail! The markings depicting 10ths of a degree are razor sharp! And, again, this is only an indication of what the rest of the simulation will be. That if the compass is this insanely great, just imagine what the entirety of this desktop-quality u-boot simulation will be! GET. THIS. APP. NOW.

This is a working detailed 3D-Simulation of a U-Boat compass used on German Type VII U-Boats during World War 2.
This App uses artwork from the upcoming mobile submarine simulation "WOTA: Wolves
of the Atlantic“ and was developed in cooperation with the Technical Museum U 995 of the German Naval Association. In addition, the app comes with a short animated tour detailing the compass installations aboard Type VII submarines.
- Compass assisted by the gyroscope.
- High resolution 360° panorama of U 995’s command room. Take a virtual look around by moving your device.
- Look at the compass from different angles by moving your device (lockable). Use pinch to zoom gesture to resize it.
- Animated information tour with 3D models of a Type VII U-Boat and its command room.
- Choose your compass case color: Black, Gray, Brass or Transparent.
- Outer (360°) and inner (10°) compass ring, just like on a typical naval compass.
- Angle of List indicator.
- Rate of Turn indicator.
- Speedometer (requires built-in GPS.)
- Latitude and longitude (requires built-in GPS or Wi-Fi network connection.)
- Different units (knots, km/h, mph, ROT per second or per minute.)
Important: like all compass apps, this app is based on the built-in compass chip. Please don’t use this app for critical applications like real world navigation
