    Default Compass

    Has anyone had issues with compass apps. I use to have my tiny compass and it quit working. It would just point in one direction even after several attempts to recalibrate, cache erase, and trying other compass apps.
    The gps works fine.

    Default Re: Compass

    Yes, I had the same problem and it affected several programs. It seems to be some kind of problem with the magnetic sensor. A search suggested holding a magnet about an inch away from the side of the phone and moving it around all 4 sides.
    Worked for me!
