    Dumb question.

    I just want to be assured when I get this device for the wife.

    No Compass feature doesn't mean Navigation or Maps wont work correctly. right?

    I guess the Star Tracker app wont work either in Leap?

    Thanks

    Maps will still work, as it uses GPS to determine which direction you're facing. Apps like Star Tracker and AR Kick that rely on a compass will be an issue.

    This is a confirmed spec, the official BlackBerry Leap website states that the Leap has:
    "Assisted, Autonomous and Simultaneous GPS Pre-Loaded with BlackBerry Maps application. Support for user plane and control plane GPS."

    The lack of a compass will result in you being unable to open the compass app, waiting 30 seconds, waving the phone around in figure eights for 2 minutes - a common sight in the corporate setting and one which will surely affect productivity.

    BlackBerry Classic = Corporate User Perfection!

    So this device then will be have like the Torch 9810 I had when opening the compass app.
    It worked somewhat ok, except inside buildings.
