Moto G: Compass not working with Waze and Ingress
I've had my Moto G since the first of the year and it's a great phone. Howver, I have one problem that's bugging me.
The compass doesn't seem to work in navigation or while playing Ingress. In Ingress it ALWAYS points north and won't adjust to the compass heading, and yes I've turned the dynamic compass on. In Waze, which I use to navigate in the car it never knows which way I'm facing until I move and the GPS can detect my direction of motion.
I downloaded a compass app just to make sure it was working, and it was fine. It also works in Google Maps.
Has anyone else noticed this?

Re: Moto G: Compass not working with Waze and Ingress
Anybody figure this out?!?! I just got a Moto G 2015 and it does the same thing in Ingress... and yes, it does have a hardware compass. You can use Phone Tester from the Play Store and verify it has a true compass, an Asahi Kasei Microdevices 3-axis calibrated magnetic field sensor.
