Members

The MagnetometerAccuracy enumeration has these members.

MemberValueDescription
Unknown | unknown0

The accuracy is currently not available, typically because the driver can't report it.

You should determine, based on your app's needs, whether your app will want to ask users to calibrate the device whenever this value is returned.

Unreliable | unreliable1

The actual and reported values have a high degree of inaccuracy.

Apps should always ask the user to calibrate the device whenever this value is returned.

Approximate | approximate2

The actual and reported values differ but may be accurate enough for some application.

Apps that only need a relative value, like a virtual reality app, can continue without additional calibration.

High | high3

The actual and reported values are accurate.

No additional calibration is needed.

Remarks

Apps that need calibration should periodically ask the user to calibrate the device. We suggest doing this no more than every 10 minutes.
