Sorry for my poor English. With mattc Leo + Froyo w/Sense RC1.3a on my hd2, the compass works, but I found there has 90 degrees offset. Could someone can fix this problem ?

Is a known bug. Something with the automatic calibration...

you need to calibrate your compass , move your hand like that about 10 times and it is done http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BoxpSK7i1vM

After calibration, compass still has 90 degree offset.

I think maybe the METAL DETECOR's author could help for this.

i agree, this is a fairly annoying issue as navigation/maps/streetview/ and skymap all rely on this to function.
