3D Model Geolocation not in SDK Examples

3D Model Geolocation not in SDK Examples

Hmm i have a doubt.

As far as i read, Pokemon Go could work flawessly even without a compass, because compass is not so diffuse as feature. Then why Wikitude requires it for geolocation? Can't you add same functions that would use GPS/Wifi positioning?
Thank you for the answer. 


you need to have the electronic compass minimum. Gyroscope is optional. See full list of requirements for Android devices to run the Wikitude SDK here:


Yes, i can confirm the gyroscope and compass are missing. It has the accelerometer however. So its mandatory to have them in order to work with geolocation or can i work around it? 

Thanks :)
Seems like it's missing the required sensors: electronic compass and accelerometer/gyroscope.

This is my device:

Can you spot whats missing to run GeoLocation samples? It mounts Jellybean 4.1 so OpenGLES 2.0 *should* be supported.



Taking a look to the code, i spotted this:

// don't include sample if it requires IR functionality on
// devices which don't support it.

So i'm suspecting my device doesn't support IR .. ?

Hi there!
I downloaded the SDK (both native and JS) and built it with Android Studio. Everything worked fine and the demo started on my device. But i can't see the 3D Object Geolocation menu. The 3D model voice just lead me to a sub menu with 5 samples instead of 6, so the last one (3D models on geolocation) is not appearing.
What im doing wrong? Could be an issue with GPS?

Thank you!
