    Angry 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?

    E72 is S60 3rd Edition FP2. It does not support JSR 256.

    The app you have seen is probably a native, Symbian application, not Java.

    I recommend you use the SDK appropriate to your device.

    Is there any way to access the magnometer with S60 3rd Edition FP2 ?
    with JSR256 i could access accelometer sensors.
    what is the language for native Symbian application ?

    like graham said, there is no way to use jsr256 on a s60 3rd edition FP2.
    Native application for s60 3rd FP2 are developped in Symbian C++ or Qt.
    you may also take a look at python

    JSR-256 works in S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2, however, not all sensors are bridged into the world of Java.
