    Just wanted to know if anyone else is having a problem with their compass?
    Mine seems to frozen. No idea how long it's been like this. Just went to use it yesterday and it was like that.
    Tried different times in different locations and same results.
    I'm using a Z30 with 10.3.2.2226 OS

    Did you try closing the app? Resetting your phone? Location Services turned on?

    This is a know issue.

    I'm not sure but I detected the following: For some damned reason the compass seems to depend on GPS (even if the compass is magnetic). Try to cause a GPS app to do a GPS request to get the current position. After this the compass should suddenly work again. I had this in several cases.

    You can also load an app called GPS Status. It will activate real GPS and you can clear your cache.
