    Default Note 3: Barometer sensor problem. Just me?

    Note 3: Barometer sensor problem. Just me?-2013-11-26-08-04-14.jpg
    Pictures paint a thousand words. As can be seen above I have been getting unusual readings from the barometer sensor on my new note 3. I have run the self test on the barometer sensor and it passed. This is not surprising since the odd readings are intermittent. I am obviously using the app SyPressure, but have also had spurious readings from other barometer capturing apps as well. At this stage I have no idea whether this is a hardware or software issue or if the sensor is still calibrating. This all worked fine on my Note 2. Also these reading were when the phone was just sitting on the table in one place, not when the phone was on the move in any way.

    I wanted to ask if there are any other Note 3 barometer users out there who have had anything like this or is it just me, i.e a hardware fault on my device?

    Obviously I am also interested if anyone else is using SyPressure or another app that stores the barometer readings on their note and not having a problem. This will be evidence that it is a hardware issue just with my Note 3.

    Thanks

    Device: Note 3 - GT-N9005 brought sim-free unlocked.

    Is there nobody else using the barometer on their note 3? No-one?

    The Note 3 has barometer, relative humidity, relative and ambient temperature senors. You have a mobile weather station in your pocket. As this is one of the very few phones with these senors, finding an app is difficult.

    [Forgot about the magnetic sensor]

    I knew the S4 had the barometer and ambient temp sensors but never knew how to access them. On the same note though (pun intended), I DIDN'T know the Note 3 had them as well.

    nice to know we have a barometer! good to know i can use it for more than making phone calls

    loaded the Barometer & Altimeter app by Alessandro Rosso. playing around with it, and compared the reading to a local wunderground station. my N3 has 29.83, the station has 29.86; seems pretty accurate. The temperature is within 2 degrees of my thermostat, and the relative humidity is within 3% of my wall unit.

    Thanks for the response, but you are looking at the measurement at just one time. If you see from the screens I pasted I was using the historic function, that showed I was getting a bad reading only once in a while. The rest of the time the readings were normal.

    Please see if you get any funny readings over a 24 or 48 hour period

    Is this taken as a one time reading or when you have sypressure recording the readings over a 24 or 48 hour period? I like sypressure as it tries to make weather forecasts based on the pressures it is seeing, but each to their own. I did try weather signal and also got a few funny readings over 24 to 48 hour period.

    What I mean be a funny reading is one that was below 900 or above 1100 millibars, which should never happen especially if the phone is sitting in the same place the whole time....

    Be aware though that your measurement may not be the same as weather stations. Weather stations have their readings corrected to sea level pressure: . Some barometric apps will do this correction for you using the GPS to determine altitude.

    When i put *#0*# i can see the barometer problem it displays the altitude too but the problem is that the altitude is always negative (-13 or -14) even though i am on the 3rd floor.
    Can anyone tell how to fix it?

    Just download Samsung's own Barometer app from the Samsung app store see if it reads different...
    Do not question the words I type, question the reply you are typing at this moment...

    Thanks for this thread. It opens up a whole new dimension of my N3 heretofore unknown to me. :-)

    My note 3 barometer is not responding!!!
    It's not a hardware issue , because it was working when I updated to kit kat.
    Later I rooted the OS and re booted. ..and the barometer is not responding.
    This was the case with 4.3 version of the OS.
