    So, in the last few weeks my compass has needed constant recalibration. Whenever I open my compass app, it says 'abnormal field', I calibrate, and it lasts for about five minutes. Google Sky Map is pretty much useless as well as compass mode in Street View.

    Anyone else having issues?

    I've found that if I wave it around real quick as I open the apps it calibrates. Not sure why it can't save the calibration. It was fine when I first got it.

    Still open to suggestions.
