Hello

I am using galxy s5 vodafone Australian version. I have issue with maps that when I search my current location. The blue arrow head is comes up with correct location but wrong arrow direction, while traveling in car blue dot used to move but arrow head shows downward direction. I checked galaxy s3 and that is perfectly fine. How to fix that ?

Thanks

Try drawing "∞ shapes" in the air with your phone to calibrate it.

I've had this problem with all androids I've owned, all round the world. Figure 8 movements will prompt the arrow to point in another - seemingly random - direction. Do it 20 or do times and eventually it will point roughly the right way. Very evident when navigating around on foot.
