Hello. I have a problem with compass direction after I rotate the map, compass points to the wrong position (see screenshots). Internal conpass is gps oriented.

Hi,

GPS "compass" rotates map only during movement - orientation is interpolated from several GPS-fixed positions in a row. If you want to rotate map or compass without movement, use hardware compass or the "auto-change" option.

Also, "GPS based compass" considers the direction of the motion, not orientation of the device as the true compass would.
