replicate the heading indicator in the native maps application

is it possible to turn on the direction indicator like you can do in the native map application or to rotate an annotation image to simulate it?

    • Thanks Hal, I've seen those but what I'm looking for is like the blue compass indicator in the native app.. I've kinda simulated it with a bunch of annotation images that I switch up based on heading readings.. but it looks choppy and amateur… I'm hoping to get something nice and smooth looking.

    • Dan, can you maybe use a imageview styled as the compass indicator that you are trying to imitate, and use animations to rotate it to point in the correct direction?
