WOTA: U-Boat Compass

Mark Hessburg
This is a working detailed 3D-Simulation of a U-Boat compass used on German Type VII U-Boats during World War 2.
This App uses artwork from the upcoming mobile submarine simulation "WOTA: Wolves of the Atlantic“ and was developed in cooperation with the Technical Museum U 995 of the German Naval Association. In addition, the app comes with a short animated tour detailing the compass installations aboard Type VII submarines.

- Compass assisted by the gyroscope.
- High resolution 360° panorama of U 995’s command room. Take a virtual look around by moving your device.
- Look at the compass from different angles by moving your device (lockable). Use pinch to zoom gesture to resize it.
- Animated information tour with 3D models of a Type VII U-Boat and its command room.
- Choose your compass case color: Black, Gray, Brass or Transparent.
- Outer (360°) and inner (10°) compass ring, just like on a typical naval compass.
- Angle of List indicator.
- Rate of Turn indicator.
- Speedometer (requires built-in GPS.)
- Latitude and longitude (requires built-in GPS or Wi-Fi network connection.)
- Different units (knots, km/h, mph, ROT per second or per minute.)

Important: like all compass apps, this app is based on the built-in compass chip. Please don’t use this app for critical applications like real world navigation
