Your rating: None Average: 5 (11 votes)

Just some quick and dirty scaling added now Jolla brings proper compass support to Xperia X with the release of 2.2.1 Nurmonjoki.
Original version by llornkcor can be found in the Jolla store.

Compass is a simple compass app that shows the degrees from magnetic north.

Is it possible to add the option to switch between magnetic and true?

Looks like you are talking about switching between the magnetometer and the compass

The "Anchor" app by Nesnomis (Jolla store) should have a fallback to magnetometer, and was aimed at the Xperia X at that moment, when it had still had broken compass component support.
This workaround is no longer needed and you can't switch in this app (grayed out). I even wonder if it still gets activated as a fallback.

So if you really need a magnetometer bases reading you could try Anchor.

It is not available for Xperia 10 series.

If you mean "does not work": that's because the Xperia 10 still has compass issues running SFOS and we have to wait for a Jolla fix.

Is it supposed to work with Xperia X? Compass unresponsive for me.
Oops, sorry, I didn't upgrade to Nurmonjoki yet.
