    How can i access the magnetometer (compass) sensor on E72 ?

    i use s60 5th edition SDK.
    i added JSR256 to my libraries.
    i can see only 2 acceleration sensors.
    one gives me x_axis data and the other give me Y_axis data.
    i know for sure magnetometer HW exist in nokia E72, and i have APP which uses it.
    So way cant i see it in the sensor infos?

    I don't think it has magnetometer, at least technical specifications are not mentioning it: http://europe.nokia.com/find-product...specifications

    According this link (device details) it does have magnetometer please see extra features and it also should have API acording this.
    http://www.forum.nokia.com/Devices/D...fications/E72/
    I also have the NorthPole.sisx App which works fine on E72.
    So i am sure the HW is there.
    The problem is how can i read the sensor because it doest appaers in the sensor Info [].

    you could maybe then check the Symbian C++ example and see whether Symbian does list the sensor and whetehr it can be used. Anyway, if it is Java problem, then I would suggest asing it in the Java section, somebody reading that part might know better on Java specific problems.
