    OK I don't know if it's a hidden feature or not but it's new to me !..

    Go to the Maps app on your iPad and hit the locations button twice and see what happens !..

    it's not a hidden feature... you hit the locate button twice and it turns the magnometer on. when you turn , the map turns with you .
