    Mine gives unstable and completely inaccurate information.

    Mind you, I ran the 710 for one day running Mango, before upgrading to Tango. If I remember correctly, the one time I tried the compass under Mango, it's results were decently accurate.

    I'm using these two compass apps:

    and
    http://www.windowsphone.com/en-US/ap...0-13072af30efd

    And despite what settings I choose, the apps don't even agree with each other!!

    Any and all feedback would be definitely appreciated, so I know if I have to go do a warranty claim or not.

    I just installed both of the Compass apps you listed, both of them are the same. Did you calibrate it?

    I compared it with a real compass that I have, it is slightly off. But at least both of the programs points to the same direction for North 0"

    Hi darthhen,

    Yes, I did calibrate them, as well. The readings are totally off, however. E.g. instead of reading 58 deg NE, they are anywhere from 90-180 degrees off.

    Are you using Mango or Tango?
