Just want to chip in my two cents.
A few weeks ago, I was playing with my iPhone4 and downloading a few compas apps. as camping season is just around the corner.
Before reading this thread, I noticed that the compases are 'off'. I dismissed it until I read this thread. I am estimating that it is about 45
degrees off. Both my iPhone and my analog compases point in the same direction and I feel that both are a little off.
Strange to say the least.
BTW, To confirm, I brough up google maps... took note of which way 'North' is... looked at the largest street near me "Hurontario" (I'm in
Mississauga, Ontario), set up some imaginary lines on my livingroom floor in the general orientation of Hurontatio and also Hwy 403. North is ~45
degrees between Hurontario/403... poped up my compass and sure enough, it's about 40-45 degrees off.
EDIT: forgot to mention that they are 'off' in the eastern direction.
