Any other K1 users have the following problems since the 3.2 update?
* Compass application (get it free at the Market) is off by 90 degrees (north points east).
* Google Sky Map (free at the Market) no longer tracks with compass and accelerometers, hence no augmented reality mode. "Star Chart" now also fails.
A Google search reveals a similar problem on the ASUS Transformer after their 3.2 update. My understanding is that ASUS had to release a hurried patch to fix it, although I haven't yet read very deeply about their solution.

Ok, this is obviously a small coding error because I'm able to calibrate the compas using "GPS Status" from the Android Market. Once I've done that the compass works perfecly in that app. I leave that app and go to Google Sky or any other compass program, and it's still 90 degrees off. I go back into GPS Status, and it's still right on. Hope this means something to somebody doing the coding.

Could anyone report whether this is now resolved in the latest update?
One of the things that we found (and might have affected Jamez's results) is that have the phone in close proximity to the tablet may change the results.
Any update on experiences out in the wild?

I'm on 3.2.1
All by itself, out in the middle of the yard, no phone or other interference in sight, the problem is still the same as it has been (exactly 90 degrees off). Still waiting and hoping for a fix...
