Upgrade Tips:

If you are about to upgrade — upgrade to Spyglass. The Camera Mode in Spyglass can be turned off to save battery power, so you only need one app. The Commander Compass app is still maintained in the store to support existing users and to provide free updates.

Copy all your waypoints between apps via email right on your device or use iTunes file sharing.
