Bug with close points that moves a lot

Bug with close points that moves a lot

Placement of the POIs on Screen highly depend on the device's magnetometer (digital compass) and environmental factors. Here are some things to check:

Calibrate the device's digital compass by rotating it around each axis

Move away from large metal objects as they have a bad influence on the sensor

Some devices have better accuracy than others.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi people

I'm currently using Wikitude for a project on Android, with PhoneGap. I read all the guides and I'm modifying the example 3_PointOfInterest_3_MultiplePois with the purpose to have some random points close to my position. The code looks like this, I only have changed the random longitude and latitude (with only 4 points) :


    // request POI data
    requestDataFromLocal: function requestDataFromLocalFn(centerPointLatitude, centerPointLongitude) {
        var poisToCreate = 4;
        var poiData = ;

        for (var i = 0; i < poisToCreate; i++) {
                "id": (i + 1),
                "longitude": (centerPointLongitude + (Math.random() *.001)),/// 5 - 0.1)),
                "latitude": (centerPointLatitude + (Math.random() *.001)),/// 5 - 0.1)),
                "description": ("This is the description of POI#" + (i + 1)),
                "altitude": "100.0",
                "name": ("POI#" + (i + 1))


Works BUT the points moves a lot, take a look:

(begin position:)


(time to dance :) )


Any ideas why? Too close?

Tks for your time.
