GPS: facing direction
Is it possible for the GPS receiver to know your orientation (i.e. where you're facing)? It seems the map does not turn when I turn, therefore I cannot use it as a compass for example. A nasty consequence of the GPS not knowing where you're facing is that, at the start of a Walk route, you have no idea in which direction you should be heading. What I do is just start walking in a random direction and then look at the map to see whether I'm going in the right direction. After that it's easy, of course, but it would be so much easier if the GPS could tell "where I'm looking" by orientation of the mobile. Can anyone clear this up for me? Thanks in advance!
Some fones now have a built in compass such as the Nokia n97.
