Well I've had my S5 for a while now and noticed with things like Google Maps, Sky Map and a compass app I have that the compass in this phone is often wrong. Anyone else find this?

Yep. It happens every now and again to start navigation and even though the car is moving the heading is sideways. That happens in both horizontal and vertical orientation. Tried disabling screen rotate with no effect.
Above mentioned behavior happened only few times so far but non the less is really annoying.
If anybody could help by explaining why it happens and what can be done will be great.
