    I'm and old codger at 54 and bought my first smart phone, a Droid X, about a month ago. I'm checking weather, reading books on Kindle, playing Euchre and having a good ol' time. Threw away my paper calendar and using the Droid X for that. Take notes on EverNote. Oh, and it makes phone calls too!

    Wonderful little device. Love the built in Navigation app! Gave my old GPS to the wife, and bought a adapter for the car.

    I'm in. :icon_ banana:

    I've never had much luck calibrating my compass and when I do it takes foreeevvveeer. How many times have you tried?

    I did it when I first got the phone and it was quick and easy. I've done two updates and a couple 'hard reboots' since and tried it three times this evening. Just turns red after about 2 minutes.

    Well its not much help, but my only suggestion would be to reboot and try it again. Also if the compass is performing up to snuff I wouldn't worry about it too much.

    Yeah I was thinking it's probably working fine and just doesn't have a Calibrated display. What does yours say?
