Hi,
On my Samsung xCover2, GPS needle and magnetic needle are displayed both in compass mode.
Depending on the environment, the magnetic needle can give false indications.
It should be great to get possibility to choose only the GPS needle, only the magnetic needle or both ... Smile

If not possible to have settings, is there any easy way to activate/deactivate the magnetic needle ? Confused Thanks ...

Hi,
Look at my screenshot showing north false with the magnetic needle ...
This is the reason why i would like to deactivate magnetic needle in TB settings when needed. Smile
Regards

Past weekend I participated in search action for missing pieces of crashed airplane. I kept TB running on y phone and at some point we were told to change our heading to 250° and I had to guess where that is based on magnetic needle in compass mode because compass mode only shows azimuth for GPS based heading.
I wish there was an option to select which heading was predominant the one based on internal compass or the one based on GPS movement. The selected heading would also be used in map.

Hopefully one day TB will display magnetic heading.
Until then I'll have compass app installed.
