French and Spanish Language

Sun Azimuth on Compass

As Microsoft does not allow app developers to use the internal compass chip on Windows Phone 7, devices can not determine North when standing still. Now Outdoor Navigation helps in such situations(as a workaround) with indicating the Sun’s direction. Users can align the Sun icon towards the Sun and get the right direction.
