    Android: Is therea hardware/sensor device list

    If there a nice table somewhere showing what Android devices support what SDK level with what hardware sensors are installed?

    (I'm developing my speed limit alert app and it'd be nice to use the compass but not if it disses a lot of people!)

    regards

    The best way of doing this is for your app to check if there is a compass and use it if there is and don't if there isn't. See PackageManager | Android Developers which I think does what you need.
