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.
Thanks

I am facing the same problem. The compass doesnt wok in any of the apps that uses the compass.

On a side note, I am not able to get the ambient sensor to work after updating to Mango. Anyone else facing that issue?

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.

Well I just called DELL and it looks like they found out about this from my post (LOL). It is a "compatibility issue" (whatever that means). I dont get how they can call it a "compatibility issue" when it is clearly a "Dell deleted this driver" issue. I am going to give Dell one week to fix this issue before I contact a lawyer.
