    Everytime I start up my compass it says compass interference. It works when I recallibrate it though. Does this happen to anyone else?

    Does this happen in your car? My compass never works in my car from all of the magnetic interference in the stereo system.

    I'm getting these issues as well. The only time it PERFECTLY worked was at the beach today. Figures.

    I don't see where the interference is being caused from. I think they made the magnetometer too sensitive.

    It happens with me all the time. Just a quick recalibration gets it back working. It only takes a few seconds.

    I thnk I solved it. It doesn't happen if you start the app when your phone is flat in your palm
