Hi!

How can I include Compass functionality in a program for a hand held device using C#.NET CF?

If the device you're targeting has GPS you could use that for compass functionality. For ideas you might find this helpful: http://www.cjcraft.com/blog/2008/06/04/30DaysOfNETWindowsMobileApplicationsDay03GPSCompass.aspx[^]
Since the link to the code download is kind of hare to find here it is: http://www.cjcraft.com/blog/ct.ashx?id=ec8761dd-a8df-40b2-a1b7-4d38600a658d&url=http%3a%2f%2fcid-0779b8ef58de4561.skydrive.live.com%2fself.aspx%2fPublic%2fGPSCompass.zip[^]

Best Regards,
Manfred

Good links :)
If you mean "How can I write a compass program for .NET Compact Framework in C#?" then it will depend on whether the device can support it in hardware at all (Windows Phone does) and how good you are at interop programming: compass support is not included in the current version: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/windowsphone7series/thread/adf69ffd-b512-4177-8733-c6256d4439df/[^]
