Hello;
One of our apps is using compass for reality augmented, and we found that the compass direction were very weird.
After comparing again an iPhone 4S, here the reading

Almost 90 degrees off, also it seems that the compass jumps time to time.

Is it a known issue with the compass found in the HP touchpad ?

Now it is.

It's likely that the compass chip on the PCB is just laid out 90 degrees off from the portrait orientation.

I didn't know the touchpad had the ability to view 'augmented reality' - If so, could anyone point me in the right direction in finding any information relating to 'augmented reality' and the touchpad.
