Sky Map is an Android-based hand-held planetarium. It can be used to find stars, planets, and other nebulae. It was originally developed by Google Sky Map. Now it is open-sourced and donated.


The Map isn’t moving/points in an incorrect place

You must ensure that you have not switched to manual mode. Is your phone equipped with a compass or compass? Sky Map can’t tell you your orientation if it doesn’t. It’s easy to find it.

here: Try calibrating your compass by moving it in a figure of 8 motion or as described

here: Is there anything magnetic or metallic in the vicinity that could interfere with the compass’ function? You might try turning off magnetic correction (in settings). It may make the compass more accurate.

Why does my phone not support autolocation?

Android 6 has made permissions more flexible. As described above, you will need to enable Sky Map’s location permission setting.


The Map is jittery

A phone without a gyro will cause jitter. Adjust the speed and damping of your sensor in settings.

Do you need an internet connection?

Yes, although some functions (such as entering your location manually) will not work without it. Instead, you can use the GPS or enter your latitude and longitude.

I can help you test the most recent features.

Sure! Yes!
