Its here! Magnetic compass Beta firmware is release!
We have put in a lot of effort to complete the magnetic compass firmware for the RockBox Blue. This firmware will allow you to take advantage of the RockBox Blue magnetic compass, as well as sensor information to show heel angle and fore/aft trim angle. Since this is the first time the firmware will be used by RockBox customers, we are releasing it as a Beta version, be aware that there is still the possibility that a bug or two exists in the firmware!
