Just wanted to share a thought and see what others have to say, I've been writing a little compass app that utilises the Orientation Sensor. (android 1.5 on tmobile G1)
First impressions are that it tends to jump around a fair bit.. especially when sensor delay is set to fastest..
Now whats caused me to post here is that I was using the adb logcat tool to monitor a downloaded app called Orienteer, whcih again shows a compass.. This app however appears to be using GPS to get its bearing and not the sensors which seems a little odd as from experience you have to be moving in order to get a reliable bearing using GPS, whereas this compass seems to be quite accurate and smooth without needing to move...
Anyone else experimented with both sensors & GPS?
