Compass is inaccurate (30°)
I got my new Galaxy S3 last week and I am experiencing the first problems now.
The magnetic compass is about 30° inaccurate. Every time I am using Google maps it does not point in the direction i am looking to.
Take the attached
picture for example.
The mobile is pointed directly along the street but the little blue dot does not point straight.
I have calibrated the compass several times using *#0*# and the App GPS STATUS, drawing multiple 8s in the air and turning it around the 3 axles.
I have these problems inside and outside. Sometimes when I am outside it shows me the correct direction but after making some steps and turning around it seems like the compass is getting confused again. I am using a rubber case without any metal attached to it and a Stock Android 4.1.2.
Do you have any advice for me or do you experience the same problems as I do?
I also checked the compass from a Galaxy S2, which was even more inaccurate and on my old Galaxy S Plus which shows the same strange things to me as my S3 (but I have to say that the compass is kind of messed since it fell into water).
I am running out of ideas what to do now...
Thank you in advance for your help!
