    Magnetometer

    Hello forum,

    i would like to use the magnetometer to gather the orientation actually. I know thats possible with Location.getCourse() but the compass delivers more accurate informations.

    Thanks
    Daniel

    On which device you want to do this? you will first need to check if the sensor API is supported on that device and is it implemented to give you this required info on that device by the OEM.

    thanks,
