Hello Kedar,

In order to be able to use the GeoFeature, the minimum requirements a device should have are an accelerometer and a compass (magnetometer). Please check here the full list of device requirements based on the SDK feature you are using.



I’m developing an app that uses the Geofeature, but if a device does not have a compass I do something different (open a map with the user and the point position ). I have packaged the app, and uploaded it to google play but I can’t download it on devices that do not have compass . Is there any way to do this? How can I make it work an devices that don’t have this feature?

Hello Luis,

In order to make that work please edit the AndroidManifest.xml according to below code


        android:required="true" /> <---- set this to false
