Default Maclaw CM11 compass bug?

Hello, anyone is having problems with compass, it's weird because GPS is working just fine, but compass app's don't point north. Any workarounds?
It's the only bug I have in this amazing room, and I need it for geocaching

Yes I am having the same problem and it seems to be on all cm11 based roms.
The official geocaching app seems to work OK but I don't like that app much. C:geo is a far better app but as you say the compass function doesn't work on cm11. To be fair this is most likely an issue with the app rather than with the rom.
C:geo works fine for me on Maclaw's cm10.2 which is pretty much a flawless rom and one I'm totally happy to stay with.

I actually use another app for the compass, GPS status, and it doesn't work

There is a beta for GPS status & toolbox (atm 4.3.85) which does work with CM11.

No you're right it doesn't.

Smart compass does though.
