Assuming you have a sensor equipped device you can use the compass sensor to give you heading to magnetic North. 0 is magnetic North and 180 is Magnetic South.


Hi David

can i find wind directions using sensors

Thanks and Regards

I would say no, you'd need an external sensor for wind direction unless you aligned the Ultrabook with the wind, i.e. make the Ultrabook a weather vane ;0)

Reading the article shows Wind direction sensors but they are not required by Win8 so although there *may* be devices that include they will probably be special builds.
