There is a difference between what the compass and therefore also the orange guide on top of the map and the other apps like Google Maps and Samsung compass utility. From what I have chcecked, the other apps are more accurate than Locus. How can I fix it?

Please find the attached screenshot - even if I set my phone to the north accurately (by the Samsung compass, which is correct) the Locus is still slightly tilted.

Hello,

this is probably the difference between magnetic bearing and true bearing.

You can change it in the settings: https://docs.locusmap.app/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:settings:gps#use_true_bearing
