Ok this is driving me nuts for sometime. After i flashed cyanogen mod 9 on my i9100g, the compass ( blue arrow ) pointeris pointing 45degrees in the wrong direction.

I tried wiping everything then flash it, still the same issue. Anyone have a fix on this. I tried the compass calibration app amd still the same problem

I hope someone can help us with this one. I've searched the web for answers. they said it was a problem with the cyanogen mods even from their other releases for the i9100. I just hope there is a fix for this one because I do love cyanogenmod cwm

i9100g
if theres anything thats bad about galaxy series... its i9100g... it is a piece of **** i have used i9100.... absolutely brilliant... galaxy s3 is even more amazing...

i have standard ics rom... on an unlocked phone and have the same problem with google maps... i have to hold the phone upside down with the pointer suggesting m going backwards in navigation...

other gps apps work fine... like co pilot... but its just the built in google maps and navigation that has this issue...

looking into it...
if i find smfn uselfull will update...

for the time being its really testing my patience by actually having me walk around like a honey bee in the streets on london hopping from one road to another, just to find out i am heading the wrong way...

ciao

wow, an actual answer. so it's the built-in map that's screwy. Happened to me too, walking around singapore going the opposite direction under the hot sun. I hope they can find a patch or fix for this one

Have the same problem, but an app like Smart Compass works fine.

I have been having the same problem.

It was there even when i was on the Stock ROM. other apps are fine, the google maps is what's messed up.

I think the GMaps app is a bit more sensitive, and may be interacting with other metallic items around, because at times it does show the right direction.

st times it's pointing in the opposite direction.
