Compass

This sample inserts a live card to the left of the Glass clock that displays a compass. Tapping the live card presents a menu with two options:

  • Read aloud: read the compass's current heading using text-to-speech
  • Stop: remove the compass from the timeline

The compass also contains a small list of landmarks that will appear on the screen when the user is within 10 km of those locations. See the res/raw/landmarks.json file to add your own.

Getting started

Check out our documentation to learn how to get started on https://developers.google.com/glass/gdk/index

Running the sample on Glass

You can use your IDE to compile and install the sample or use adb on the command line:

$ adb install -r CompassSample.apk

To start the sample, say "ok glass, show a compass" from the Glass clock screen or use the touch menu.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
