Since upgrading my phone to ICS, my compass is reversed, with the north end pointing south.

I have tried waving the phone in a figure 8 pattern and flipping it over on all axis.

What can I do to get my compass pointing the right way?

  • Have you tried using different compass apps, to see if it's the app or your phone/OS that has the problem? It's possible the app you're using may have problems with the compass in ICS.

  • @GAThrawn: I've tried a variety of apps, and as far as I can tell, they all show the exact same problem.

I found the answer on this page, and the solution was to download and install a compass fix patch.
