Check this out: http://www.mobilosiranytu.fw.hu/
I think you're looking for something similar.
I try to translate to English the description:
"This program is not an original compass. This program has the ability to calculate the angle between the northern direction and the direction of the sun (or the moon) by the knowledge of the actual place and time. This angle showed on the display by an orange (the Sun) and a blue (the Moon) arrow. You have to rotate one of the arrows towards the right direction (the orange towards the Sun or the blue towards the Moon), and the compass will show the right directions...."

wait maybe i am wrong...but when we go north i'm sure the lattitude numbers goes up or down??

i know by standing we won't get it...atleast by walking couple of metres it should pick up the lattitude numbers....and see if we're going north....??

GPS-based compasses compare two positions to know your direction, while a real compass is a magnet that interacts with the earth's magnetic field to know where you are looking (without moving)
