Very happy to finally see direction and distance in the new Compass tool in the new version of Collector (What's new?—Collector for ArcGIS | ArcGIS).  It would be even better if the directions were not in cardinal or inter-cardinal format, but a numeric format instead.  It would also be nice to be able to pick the distance units to the feature or dropped pin.

Many others will be glad to see this new Compass tool in Collector as well:

Thanks for the continued app development!

Having a bearing and distance to a point is a business critical item for us. Esri, take note that Avenza maps provides this functionality.
