I've been having a really annoying issue with my Note 3 and Google Maps: the dot-arrow that shows my position is pointing in the wrong direction. Yes it does track me per the gps location but the issue is that as I am driving instead of the screen moving from up to down, usually along the length-wise direction, it moves at an angle or across. The only option I have is to hit the location button so that I can always have the top be North. That's not as good as having the heading pointing to the location of travel. Now, I calibrated and recalibrated the compass with GPS Status App (turns around the axes and figure eights) which seems to have worked for some, I have restarted numerous times even after turning on/off location-based services. I have cleared the cache and the google maps data. I have reinstalled it. I have even checked the compass versus real settings - seems to be pointing in the right direction. I still have the same issue. This is very frustrating and disorienting when driving. Looks like a crab moving angled to sideways across the screen.
I am on the latest Stock KitKat 4.4.2 version and Maps 7.7.0.
So, does everyone have this issue? Does anyone think is is a unique configuration issue? Is this a google maps issue? Any thoughts on how to fix?
PS...other Map Apps seem work fine (but like to use Google Maps due to the excellent traffic option)
