    Hello,

    I have installed 1.4.0 Pro. I have chosen UTM as my display coordinates and I do get info showing, but I never seem to get any value for the heading.

    I have tried walking and driving in a car at 90-100km/h but still nothing.

    Any clues?

    Hi

    Thanks, I will check that today.
    Did you enable "use internal GPS only"? with that option, heading is not available.

    Yes I did enable internal GPS only.

    Is it possible to have it work with the internal GPS? It would be nice.

    Thanks.

    Actually we are using an undocumented API for the 'force internal GPS'. This does not support the heading feature.
    We might add a calculation (as GPS itself does calculate a heading from the last Points) in the future.

    The 'force internal GPS' function is Beta, as the normal, supported API does use either the watch's or the phone's GPS.
    If you have your phone connected with Bluetooth, it is using the phone's GPS, else it's using the watch's GPS.

    Thanks for your quick replies.

    I look forward to new features as they come.
