The compass support has been developed and will be in the next release. I 
don't know when that'll be thoe.
The compass is useful because it's a magnetic compass so you can get a 
direction even when standing still. With the gps you need to be in motion in 
order to get a reliable heading. On the other hand in order for the compass 
to work propperly you have to be holding the phone the propper way so you 
can't use this for all heading data.
