Z30 - Accelerometer

  How do you get the Accelerometer (speed) to display on the map?  I'm assuming that's where it is...

Re: Z30 - Accelerometer

Perhaps I'm not asking this right...


On my old Blackberry Torch 9810, when the maps was in use, the arrow follows you as you moved, but it also displayed the speed at which you were traveling (off by a few kmh, but it worked pretty good).  Does the Z30 map display this as well? 


If so, how do you get it to display

Re: Z30 - Accelerometer

I see your other thread... the "accelerometer" does not function as a speedometer device, but for movement of the Z30 itself, i.e., a change of velocity.
