Default Problems with some navigational sensors

GPS is really quick to find a fix, but in Google Maps, I keeps wondering randomly. It's not even snapping to roads.It's just floating around some random spaces of land.

My compass doesn't work either. I've tried calibration using GPS Status.

Anyone else have these issues?

I do find the gps problem in mine too. For me it even takes time to get the gps locked (~1 min)

I have problems with compass and accelerometer too. They work randomly and they often don't report the right values!

After upgrading firmware(sony official), My compass is now even worse. GPS improved. No problems with accelerometer.
