HTC HD2 Compass app demoed

Not the best demonstration of the software functionality, but the above YouTube video does show the HTC HD2 Compass application in action.

The software makes use of the built-in digital compass and allows one to mark a spot on the built-in Google map and then navigate back to it using a combination of the digital compass and GPS.

As of yet HTC has not released any SDKs for their sensors, which unfortunately mean software that take advantage of this functionality will have to await the reverse engineering of HTC’s code.
