[closed] How can I hide blue compass pointer?

Post by mel102 » Sat Jun 04, 2016 9:07 am

Hi Guys. I've just installed Alpine Quest on an android phone which I'm going to use soley for Navigating with Alpine Quest. The new phone has no Compass Sensor, which is ok as I've found those phone compasses to be unreliable, I always rely on my old fashioned Silva compass if I need accuracy and I use Alpine Quest to corelate my position on my paper map. On my present installation I can't find a way to hide the blue compass pointer, I've chosen Target Center as I usually do, but the blue pointer is an unnecessary distraction, could this be a problem with this new phone? TIA

BTW, Alpine Quest is a brilliant support for my Hiking, well worth the money and I recommend it to all walkers, particularly here in the UK.

Hi and thanks a lot for your support.
I guess the blue pointer is your "GPS heading" since you don't have a compass sensor (so you can't turn on the compass).
If you, you can disable it from the app settings, un-check "GPS current heading".
Best regards
