+1. I chatted with Steve and he makes a good point in saying that it
isn't heading that should be used to detect whether the user is moving
or is still. It would be more natural for one to test the speed
attribute, instead. (0  means user is still, >0  means user is moving,
null means speed is not supported).

Thanks,
Andrei
