An instant sun compass you can use while you are in any application. Using just the sun, and your Palm™ clock, kisCompass displays the direction of the sun in true degrees (not magnetic) and a compass point, as well as the degrees and compass point for 90°, 180° and 270° from the sun. kisCompass requires the following:Palm OS 3.5 or higherPopletkisCompass is freeware. Use in good health... Use it for recreation, BUT DO NOT USE IT FOR NAVIGATION PURPOSES.The accuracy of kisCompass is dependent on how close your Palm clock is to Local Time. Local Time is the time your clock would say if, at exactly noon, the sun was on a north-south line directly overhead. Because of the width of time zones, and daylight saving time, Local Time is usually not the time on your Palm. Thus the inaccuracy.Note that kisCompass works correctly whether you are north or south of the sun's path. The sun's path around the earth varies from about 23° north of the equator on about June 21, to 23° south of the equator on about December 21. If you are north of 23° north, always tap "North of sun...". If you are south of 23° south, always tap "South of sun...". If you are in between 23° South and 23° North, then you need to know whether the sun's path is north or south of you.
