How does the compass feature work?

At Tractive, we are always trying to make our products and services better for our customers. Our newest feature is a compass feature in our Tractive GPS apps.

Once activated there will be a new field on a new layer on your map. It is showing an arrow pointing in the direction and the approximate distance to your pet (the GPS Tracker).

No matter how you turn your phone or the map. It will always show in the direction the Tracker is located.
You can use the compass feature to know in what direction you need to run to find your pet! Happy Tracking!

Rotating the map on your smartphone does NOT affect the compass feature in any way:
