Hello Maurice,


Mangnetometer support is included within the BlackBerry Runtime for Anrdoid Apps, as documented within the Android microsite below:

Feel free to utilize either the BlackBerry Packager for Android apps or the BlackBerry Plug-in for ADT to package and test your application, and submit it to the App World vendor portal for distribution.
