I'm just wondering, if we have a compass app like one on iphone avai?
I have problem when using google map in NYC. It doesn't tell which way i'm facing unless i walk. (vector direction)

Although the Storm2 might have the hardware needed for a true compass (as part of it's accelerometer), the Tour lacks that piece of technology. The only way the Tour can figure out direction is through movement.

I'm the developer of Compass and Compass Lite. We're looking at the new Curve2 8530 with OS 5.0 now. We won't be offering Compass Lite for the 8530 but we are certainly looking at getting Compass ready for it.
The delay in adapting Compass has been two-fold: we've been waiting for RIM to release a simulator and we've been debating about the smaller screen area available for the graphics.
We released Compass for the Curve 8900 OS 5.0 a couple of weeks ago.blueinc
