The controller of choice for the Compass Control® system is the Apple iPad. This device provides a 9.7” color touch screen which can be used in either portrait or landscape layout. The iPad offers many options that make the user experience very dynamic. These include a great graphics engine, the ability to embed images inside other images, quick navigation from page to page, and the ‘flick’ option to choose between items, pages, graphics, etc. All of these features, and more, offered by the iPad are available for use when creating the user interface.
As a secondary controller option, the Compass Control® System also supports the iPod Touch. This smaller device allows the same level of control as the iPad, but since it has a much smaller footprint, it is recommended that it be used as a secondary remote with the iPad as the main controller. The registration process is the same for the iPod as it is for the iPad.
