This plugin is completely free for use in any context or connection.
FPP external plugin for displaying geographic orientation.

It's a bit like the coordinates plugin, but more aimed at giving the viewer information about what geographic direction he is looking in.

You can choose between azimuth or FPP coordinates with low, medium or high precision. The two displays can be positioned individually and with a size and color of your liking.
Plugin parameters are read from an external xml file with the default name "direction.xml".
If you want to use a different filename you can add these lines to the FPP xml file:
