Notes

Partial support refers to the lack of compassneedscalibration event. Partial support also refers to the lack of devicemotion event support for Chrome 30- and Opera. Opera Mobile 14 lost the ondevicemotion event support. Firefox 3.6, 4 and 5 support the non-standard MozOrientation event.

  1. compassneedscalibration supported in IE11 only for compatible devices with Windows 8.1+.

Bugs

  • DeviceOrientationEvent.beta has values between -90 and 90 on mobile Safari and between 180 and -180 on Firefox.
    DeviceOrientationEvent.gamma has values between -180 and 180 on mobile Safari and between 90 and -90 on Firefox.
    See Firefox reference
    and Safari reference

  • Safari on iOS doesn't implement the spec correctly, because alpha is arbitrary instead of relative to true north. Safari instead offers webkitCompassHeading`, which has the opposite sign to alpha and is also relative to magnetic north instead of true north. (see details)
