    Hey,

    Could someone that has the Behold II post a test of Google Street View or Sky Map using the accelerometer/compass? I have a My Touch and I would like to compare the two.. Just a detailed description of the experience or a youtube video would nice.

    Thanks in advance.

    I wish I had a video for you, but my only camera is on the phone. I tried this out on both 3G and wifi. Compass mode works pretty well. Slow deliberate movements are read excellently with minimal lag on the phone. It does a great job knowing my orientation and the up/down and left/right movements are read fairly correctly.

    Is there anything more specific you were looking for?

    I have a behold 2, and Street view works great. Google Sky does not. The accelerometer and GPS and all that seem to work well enough, but the graphics do not display properly. Only the names of stars display, no constellation lines, or objects, or horizon lines, or anything. I've turned everything on and off in the settings/options, and I've re-installed the app a couple of times... nothing seems to work.
