Default Compass not working with Google Maps

Has anyone also Problems with the inbuilt Compass of the One? Lately I wanted to use Google Maps while walking and discovered the Compass is working within Google Maps. So i tried a few other Compass Apps, where some do work and others dont.

I did create a Issue on this, but it seems I'm the only one with this Issue so far: https://jira.cyanogenmod.org/browse/BACON-731

Im on stock CM11S, so it cant be any Mod / Custom Rom / Kernel Problems.

Lightbulb Compass issue related to encryption

Hi,

I have the exact same problem. At first, I thought it might be a hardware defect, but that isn't the case.

Is you phone encrypted?

As bizarre as it sounds, it seems like the compass stops working as soon as the phone is encrypted. I did a factory reset - compass started working again. Encrypted phone again - compass no longer working.

Daniel, if your phone is encrypted as well, please update the jira ticket - it will help the developers reproduce / fix the issue.

Bye,
Till

My Phone is encrypted NOW, but I really dont know if it was back when I encoutered that the Compass does not work with Google Maps.
I will try to Factory Reset if Ive got the Time and see if this does something to Google Maps. I wanted to try CM11 (without S) anyway.
