This app creates a “Guide Post” with signs on a pole showing distances and direction to any point in the world, relative to where you are. You have probably seen these at various sites all over the world, or in the TV Show “M*A*S*H”.
 You can also display a map of your location and the shortest paths to your points of interest, or use the augmented reality view to see where locations are overlayed on your camera view (ie look down and see what point is below you on the other side of the world).
