I'm not receiving an accurate reading from the compass

Try the following actions:

  • If the compass doesn't point north, move your BlackBerry® smartphone away from metal or magnets.
  • If "Calibration required" appears at the bottom of the screen, calibrate the compass manually.
  • To help prevent metal and magnets from interfering with the compass, close the Compass application before you get in a vehicle or insert your smartphone in a holster.
