It may work as a sat nav but the OP asks if it will work as a compass. GPS and compass are different functions.
I don't know for sure but from the name "northpoint sensor" I would guess that this is how the compass orientates itself to give the ability to find north. Could be wrong so maybe Lotvik can just check this out.
The penny's dropped and it's all making sense now...
It doesn't need to know which way is north to work as a GPS... it's just that when stationary it doesn't know which way it's facing.
I can live with that.
I thought it would need to know which way is North to use GPS, but of course it works out where it's going, when in motion, because it's GPS placement will be constantly changing.
