Detecting Altitude using the WP7 Phone - by Mike Gold
Last week I was hiking in the Colorado Rockies near Estes Park and my wife was very curious about the altitude. I used my wife's iPhone to get an altitude program to determine exactly how high we were. The program seemed pretty accurate because if you ask a local, they always seemed to know the exact altitude and it jived with the numbers on the phone. The iPhone app made me curious about how I could duplicate the application on the Window's Phone.
