    Just search for "compass" in the market if you want one,there's loads to choose from.
  3. Hmm not sure, not seen one on the Desire itself. However I have installed the free compass from snaptic which is quite good. Just have a look on the market for that.

  5. That looks pretty much like the Compass App as offered by Snaptic.

    That's the one I have on mine,it's just called "compass" you can change the style of it to look different.

    There is a default compass on google maps, top right of the screen, but is quite terrible

    the desire has a digital compass inside it, obviously, but as far as i know doesnt come with a specific app for it.

    like said above, just search the market for 'compass'.

    Do you have to calibrate the compass? On my old N97 I had to rotate to phone is a weird pattern to get it to work, and even then it didn't always work.

    Yes the one in the video is just called "compass" on the market, I have it on mine and its great.

    Banzibam, yes you do have to calibrate it by waving it around in a figure of 8 pattern. The guy in the video does this but he obviously doesn't know what a figure of 8 is!
