* The compass accuracy depends on having an undistorted magnetic field around your device. If you use it close to metallic objects or electrical equipment, directional accuracy may be impaired.
* The compass accuracy is also reduced when the device is aligned with the local magnetic field vector, so there may be portions of the 3-D view where results are less reliable.
