    I don’t know if anyone else has experienced this but when I open the application “GPS Status” The compass is exactly backward on the screen…Any thoughts?

    It may have to do with where you are. I've had that happen and then be fine after a reboot. Some time ago it seemed to be stuck on East no matter what position. Even went to a Verizon store and added the same GPS app to a Droid demo to see if it was different. The tech said I had too many apps running at the same time (they must've looked at my app drawer as I had turned it off prior to giving it to them).

    They ended up doing a factory reset, which fixed it. It still does it from time to time, but I think some of that is because I'm in a car or trolley.
