It is hardly possible to use the horizon tool, because it is very inaccurate.

The horizon is not leveled and the horizon tool still shows a blue line.

I calibrated and the calibration works.

Of what use is a horizon if it still shows a leveled horizon even if you can clearly see it is not.

Please make this more accurate.

There is a calibration procedure described in the manual. Read up and give it a try.

It is NOT a matter of calibration. As I wrote before I calibrated.

The problem is not that the horizon is false/not calibrated.

The problem is that the RANGE is too large.

I still get a blue line when the horizon is already off.

There should ONLY be a blue line, when the camera is EXACTLY 100% horizontal.

Now, even if you tilt a little bit, you still have a blue line.
This is no good.

Please fix this.
