A hotspot plugin for showing a magnetic compass.

rotatingImagerotatingImage=needle2.pngrotating (compass needle) image
imageOffsetXimageOffsetX="4"needle horizontal offset from compass housing center point
imageOffsetYoffsetY="-10"needle vertical offset from compass housing center point
delaydelay=40compass response speed (s) (0=no delay, 0.1-nn=slower)

Only the offsetNorth parameter can be changed dynamically from FPP. Example:
