Action cam with compass

#1

Having used a Hero for on-bike capturing, I’ve once again remembered the good things about having a heading tag in exif and the pain when you have to rely on extrapolation.
What action cameras compatible with mapillary have a compass/magnetometer?
(apart from Garmin, the garmin tax makes their 2015 tech prohibitively expensive)

It would also be nice to make a separate bluetooth compass for smartphones

yeah, the compass headings on my images can jump drastically, and sometimes are exactly 90/180deg wrong. I presume it could be both the hardware and software at fault. Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be any pnp solution for smartphones.
On the main topic, I managed to get a half price Virb ultra, as it seems the only other people doing a compass-enabled action cam were tomtom, and they don’t care anymore
