    Default New Android user with GS5- Compass?

    Does the GS5 have a compass? I've read that it does and that it even has a barometer but I can't find these on the phone. My carrier is Verizon. Help appreciated.....

    Try the free app GPS Essentials. There's a compass in there. But compasses are sooo 19th century! In the 21st century we use GPS.

    For barometer readings try one of these free barometer apps.

    I really like an app called GPS STATUS.

    It has a very smart 21st Century compass feature.

    Lol yeah I'm with you on the compass. Was really more of a curiosity thing. The barometer however, is cool.

    Most forums, and this is one of them have a "THANKS" button. That is the appropriate way to give thanks to someone if a post you are reading helps you. It is a measure of whether the time the poster takes to write that post is worthwhile.

    also, if you really LIKE a post, click on that button also. I frequently click on both buttons, especially when I find a tid bit that really helps me, or I see a poster who really gave someone some good advice. On the latter type posts, I click the LIKE button because I like the way that poster went out of his/her way to provide accurate and helpful information.
