    On my Motorola Droid the compass worked smooth. But my Incredible seems to always need calibratiing and doesn't seem to work as well, seems to hang like a sticky compass does. Anyone notice this or is it just my Incredible?

    I'm using "GPS status" compass from the Market and it works great when calibrated.

    Yes the apps I'm using are from the Market. Google Sky map and some free compass app. They seem to work ok after calibrated. If I exit a app and get right back in to the app I have to calibrate again for it to work right. I didn't have to do that on my MOTO Droid. Seems to me it should hold a calibration for longer than that.

    Is it sticking or is it not pointing in the right direction?
    My DI has none of those problems.

    Once calibrated mine works fine, I've had an update come through and I had to re-calibrate, but in general once I calibrate it's good to go... try uninstalling and install again, maybe?

    I powered the phone off yesterday. Let the phone do the reboot thing. Seems to work fine now. Go figure? Thanks for all the help anyhow.
