Default HTC Desire C and sensors problem

Hello everyone,

I have just bought my first smartphone ever so please be gentle with me if I am talking nonsense ;-)
The phone is HTC Desire C and so far I really like it. There is one issue I am looking to resolve though:

I am trying to get the Google Sky Map (Google Sky Map for Android) running but for some reason the sensors do not seem to work properly. When I turn around holding the phone in "landscape" the display does not change at all. When I move it up/down it works perfectly. I checked the accelerometer and its readings appear correct. Is it a compass issue? I am not even sure if I have one or not, since the specs I found do not seem to agree on that:

for example, according to these, there is a compass
HTC Desire C Specs, Price, Photos | Pinoy Tech Blog - The Philippines' Longest-running Technology Blog
HTC Desire C Price, Specification, Review, Preview India

while here - that there is none:
Desire C vs Wildfire S

Is anyone succesfully using Google Sky Map on Desire C?

It is really frustrating. When I first saw the Sky Map App, I was so impressed I decided to buy a smartphone. Now I got one and the map does not work :-(

Thanks guys!
