RE: EDC compass
It looks good on paper. If you google it you will find many reviews of the app and it seems to be in great use for agricultural applications.

The main complaint I see is that unless you have the latest and greatest phone the app takes several seconds to relocate itself to the next lane.

RE: EDC compass
The most modern (expensive) farm machines have internet connectivity and don't need the phone. The agricultural version of General Motors "OnStar" vehicle tracking, alarm and communications system. Neighbor claims if his combine can triangulate between 3 satellites that he can get accurate grid location within ten feet, which is better than his counter-battery artillery was during Desert Storm.
