Abstract

For the traveler who wants a display to read without having to look down at their instrument panel; Travel Companion allows those who want to monitor their speed, distance, current latitude and longitude and have a compass to find their bearing in one small, easy to use app. The app runs based off of each individual device without having to worry about signing up or registering for any form of membership. Just download the app, and run it, and it will use your devices GPS to calculate your speed, distance traveled and your current position, then uses your onboard sensor to create a compass that provides your direction, and current heading in degrees. This is meant to drivers, hikers, and mountain bikers; pretty much anyone who enjoys traveling and wants a companion to aid them in their trip.
