  5. Although I look like an idiot walking in a figure eight 3 or 4 times calibrated my compass perfectly. be sure to dial*#0*# first as noted above.
    My compass fell out of calibration when I was in England and walked past a long row of iron fence posts that made up a fence in London. They had become magnetized over the decades and as I walked past them my compass went nuts.
    Not until I recalibrated did my compass points in the proper direction.
