Last week we showcased Speed for Maps, a Speedometer jailbreak add-on for the iPhone’s stock maps app. This week, the same developer has followed up with a sequel of sorts, a compass add-on that looks and feels just like his previous work.

The main difference here, is that you must use an iOS device equipped with a digital compass. In other words, when it comes to the iPhone, only the iPhone 3GS and the iPhone 4 qualify.

As you can see, it works just as expected. This is really a great addition to the stock maps app for explorers, campers, and all of you other outdoorsy types.

If your iPhone is jailbroken, and you’ve given Compass for Maps a spin (hah!) let me know what you think about it in the comments below.
