Detailed Description

The QAltimeterReading class holds readings from the altimeter sensor.

The altitude is reported in meters relative to mean sea level.

On BlackBerry, the altimeter uses a combination of pressure and location to determine the altitude, as using pressure alone would yield to inaccurate results due to changes in air pressure caused by the weather. The location information is used to compensate for the weather. This requires that the user has enabled location services in the global settings.
