    Is there a fix for Droid Incredible users with the magnetometer? When I use the Compass app I have to calibrate the app everytime using the figure 8 motion. If I leave the app or even go into the menu settings within the app and come back I still have to recalibrate. I get an error message that says, "Abnormal magnetic field detected. Please calibrate your device." Having to do this everytime makes the Compass app as well as Google Sky Map unusable b/c it's a pain to have to recalibrate every few seconds.
