My compass works but it's just way off lol

Actually I just tried it now since maps got updates recently and now it's kinda right and isn't off by much

Phone isn't encrypted

My compass was 90 degrees off in Google Maps earlier today. It was 180 degrees off a couple weeks ago too. What causes this?

Compass works on my end but the orientation is off 90 degrees in CM11 I believe. It really throws off walking directions but driving seems ok
