Sensors


Basic Settings

Compass

Settings of your device orientation appliances. Allows to choose either built-in hardware compass or GPS-calculated azimuth for orientation that is essential for map rotation and the compass screen.

Hardware compass

More suitable for slower speeds, e.g. walking, as it does not require movement to detect direction unlike GPS.

Mobile hardware compass is very sensitive on nearby magnetic metals and may display malformed values in their close presence, e.g. magnetic flip-cases or steel steering bars.

Orientation via GPS

More suitable for car navigation due to magnetic components in the car that can affect performance of the hardware compass.

Auto-change

Shifts bearing automatically between hardware compass and GPS according to pre-defined critical speed.

Use true bearing

Sets navigation by true bearing instead of magnetic bearing.

Pressure

Calibration

Launches Pressure tab in the Altitude manager to define methods and values of pressure sensor calibration.
