A sundial compass is a tool that enables the determination of direction based on the position of the sun in the sky. It is an ancient tool that was used by early seafarers, travelers, and explorers. It operated on a simple principle - a gnomon on top of the compass casts a shadow onto a plate that has markings indicating the directions of the compass.
The sun compass is used in CircleTime app by placing the device on a flat surface, such as a table or the ground, so that it is level. The part of the device that displays the current time is directed towards the sun, and the compass then shows the correct direction of the north.
The sun compass is useful for outdoor navigation when you do not have other tools for determining direction, such as GPS or a magnetic compass.
Although the technology is ancient, the sundial compass is still a useful and reliable way to determine direction that can be used in various outdoor situations, such as hiking, camping, fishing, and exploring nature.
