Can someone confirm that the compass functions in the app skymap? I can't get it to work, always says I'm facing the same direction and if I try to calibrate it the app instantly says the calibration was successful. I couldn't get the dvp compass app to work before mango either.

I'm having the same problem. The compass in my DVP is not working. I have 3 apps installed that use the compass and all of them point to one direction and don't move.
Did you guys upgrade to Mango using the disconnect trick? The Samsung users are having the same problems so maybe not all the drivers were installed correctly. Maybe try restoring back to NoDo and wait for the update? I would try it myself but it's not really that important enough for me to lose all my information.
