    • This increases performance, esp. when debugging on Android.

  • Changes to C# Spatial example:
    • Compass calibration parameter set dialog removed from for 1042/1044 because parameters are set by the calibration software - and thus do not need setting in the example.
    • Stores/restores parameters for 1056 based on serial number, so multiple different calibrations can be maintained.
