Gyro not working in stargazing apps. (OPO)

    Hey

    So recently I've been getting into astronomy, and I would love a good stargazing app to figure out where the planets and other objects are.

    However, every single stardome app I get has the same gyro problem, so it isn't the app's fault.

    When I point my phone at the sky, holding still, it's kinda okay. But then when I start turning and then I stop, the gyro stops for a second like it should but then starts to inch back to its starting spot. Idk.

    Could anyone else try some apps? Some apps that I've tried are:
    SkyView
    Star Walk 2
    Sky Map
    Sky Tracker

    Please post your results below. Thanks!

    Same here. I tried star walk 2 and star chart on cm 12.1 and both have this weird sensor issue.

    I am using Stellarium (which I truly like) and I turn the gyro off (it is not so precise anyway)

    Sounds like a plug for stellarium. Are you sure you have it installed on an OPO? It doesn't work at all on this OPO.

    Hello I tried all those apps, SKeye and Stellarium, none of these apps work with an OPO it seems.

    I can confirm that I have Stellarium working on my OPO.
    The only problem I experienced was when I changed the star lore and I could not change it back to European (solved by uninstalling and reinstalling)

    I'Venuses SkEye and Google Sky Map, plus I have 360 videos and Google Cardboard. No drift in any of it.

    Guess I'm lucky
