I have a HTC Trophy phone - and the compass seems odd. I want to know if it's just my phone, or all phones.
Basically, I've downloaded a compass app and I expect that when I turn the phone, the compass would respond and change direction accordingly. Similarly in the Maps application I would expect the map to turn as I turn - but it doesn't.
Does anybody else have this experience, or is it just me?
billgates: Compass API is not enabled yet in wp7. Developers don't have access to it.
and for bing maps to work, change your browser and phone's regional settings to USA.
I had heard that the compass API didn't work - though I was surprised that there was a compass app.
I have changed my regional settings and the maps work (in that I can get directions, etc.) but the map doesn't rotate as I change direction. Are you saying it should (though I would guess this is reliant on the compass API as well).
