    Can anyone please tell me if your compass is working on your ZTE Valet? If so, can someone tell me what I maybe doing wrong?

    Here's the scoop...I have downloaded two compass apps from Google play store and none of 'em are working on my phone. I have also downloaded "GPS status & Tool" to calibrate my compass but that too doesn't work :-( Does anyone know if it is even compatible with the ZTE Valet.

    If GPS Status won't calibrate it, I'd guess at a hardware problem. That's my go-to compass calibration software.

    Rukbat, did you say your "Goto Compass Calibration" works for you on your phone?

    GPS Status works for every phone I've used it on. If it's not calibrating your compass I'd say you have a hardware problem.

    I also can not get compass apps to work on my Valet. Neither "Accurate Compass" nor "Compass" (that's the entire name) from the Play Store do anything.

    I don't understand why other replies mention GPS as I think these compass apps use the magnetic sensors. If so, do you know of an app to test the sensors?

    I can't get the compass or magnetic sensors to work, I would assume they are related. GPS works just fine. I've tried waving the phone in circles and 8 like most compass apps recommend, all I get is strange looks from the wife!
