I've found that compass doesn't work correctly. E.g. app google sky map is useless - I can turn arround and map's still showing East.I've tested it (*983*0#) and sensors are OK, but compass data doesn't look OK - X=13, Z=-45. Phone on the table. Also accelerometer still shows data in one axis. Is it normal? Or is any application for calibration? If I press "calib" in sensor test it shows "proximity calibration is OK".

I noticed Sky Maps behaving a bit strangely too. The sky seemed to be turning the opposite way to the way I was turning.

just to be sure try "tricorder" a very light app that displays all the sensor info. and report your findings here :).

PS- accelerometer will always show a result even when still... This explained by what you should have learned in your first ever physics class lol

Yes, exactly. It goes opposite way (or showing eastwards). You can see on picture - phone was horizontally on the table but values of compass are strange.I'd appreciate any advice.

I thought that accelerometer automatically corrects 1G from one axis. I read about it in other forum, so my mistake :)

TMV. Your ROM is really perfect and this is the only issue I have. It's nothing important I just like to know what's wrong...

I downloaded 2 random compasses and they seemed to be showing north correctly. The compass in tricorder was pointing east though.

is this maybe included in the recent update? Because i used the stock TMV ROM for both versions of Fish and Chips and havent had this issue.
I suppose the easy way to find out is to update it and try it. :) anyone having this problem on the SF2 version?

I am on SF2. I think I had the same problem with Fish & Chips v1 and v2.

I reinstalled Crescent ROM and then RLS1 to check if there is compass OK. it wasn't. I flashed back Fish and Chips RLS2 and made again sensor test. Compass still doesn't work properly but compass data are different - phone was in same position.

When you say Cresent ROM, do you mean the stock Orange/T-Mobile ROM?

No, it was "Flibblesan FLB2-R1", very first modified ROM I found here.

Hmm, would be interesting to see if the stock ROMs work OK? Looking through the stock rom thread it seems some new ones have been released recently. I wonder if they fix an issue with the compass?

I can try evening. I've got downloaded stock ROM but I forgot to try it yesterday...

Edit: In stock ROM no change - same situation as in custom ROMs. I'm using "Ulysse Gizmos compass" and it works fine. So my only problem is skymaps which is unimportant.
