    Currently FM has GetSensor( "magneticField" ) which gives the "raw" magnetic field measurements from the magnetometers. It is requested that a better function is to provide the "calibrated" magnetic field data.

    This is important because with accelerometer, gyrometers, and calibrated magnetic, latitude, longitude data a user can perform their own calculation for the attitude, user acceleration vector, bearing, speed vector, Euler angles, in both an Earth coordinate system and the coordinate system of the iOS device.
