Pardon if this has been asked before.

I am relatively new to GPS hardware, but is it possible to also track the orientation (compass) of the pictoGEO... i.e. is such info available to the device?

Background: The idea would be to e.g. tape pictoGEO to the camera, ensuring a defined orientation of the device relative to the direction the camera is pointing, to then also have a view direction defined, e.g. for Google Maps.

Example: This may be convenient when taking panorama shots in the mountains, and you would like to find out what directly exactly the camera was pointing at that time (+-5 seconds, obviously).

Question: Does the pictoGEO have a "sense of direction/orientation" using GPS data?

I am aware that there are GPS loggers that show the orientation (compass), though as I understand it, this is "simply" the angle between the last two location points in relation to the north pole, and not actually a compass *in* the device?

If not, might be nifty for a DeluXE pictoGEO :)

Hi foo,

sorry for my late reply. The PictoGeo hardware doesn't save the orientation but your idea sounds good and we'll keep it in mind for the pictoGEO future ;)

Kind regards
