AR Object stuck



I'm developing a windows phone 8 application using the GART library. I followed a tutorial and i have an issue. My objects are well localized on the map but when i switch to the camera they are stuck on the top-left corner.

Have you ever encounter this issue ?

I am developing on a Nokia Lumia 520.

What device orientation you using in your project? Can you verify your compass does not need calibration?

The Nokia Lumia 520 doesn't have a compass.Is there a way to set up the orientation in the code ?

Hi, currently it is not possible to do that on a device that has no compass. I've added a feature request to add hardware abstraction layer. With it, it should be possible to create and use a component that simulates compass (or any other device) on a machine that lacks required capabilities. See:
