    Compass calibration

    Hey everyone. I'm really hoping someone will be able to help me out. My compass on my nexus is off by about 15 degrees or so, and it's really really annoying when I use apps such as Layar, skymaps, or even a basic compass. Is there any way to calibrate it with software? I've seen a post of someone saying to basically 'hit the phone, etc..', but that didn't seem right(although, I did try it, silly me). By the way, GPS works no problem.

    Most compass apps should have a "calibrate" function. You just wave the phone around in a "figure 8" pattern.

    Here in New England, true North is about 15 degrees East of magnetic North. Make sure that's not your real issue. The magnetic North pole is in northern Canada.
