How to recalibrate the compass of your smartphone with Google Maps
It can sometimes be useful to recalibrate the compass of your smartphone to improve the accuracy of the GPS
With google maps
Google Maps is the tool that will allow you to easily reconfigure the compass of your device. Launch the application and press the small blue dot that represents you on the map.
You will bring up a menu in which several options will be displayed: display nearby places, share your position, save your parking space, calibrate with Live View, and… calibrate the compass (bottom left). Click on this tab.
Google will then ask you to follow this curious ritual by reproducing a shape of eight by moving your smartphone as if it were following a roller coaster. Be sure to reproduce the shape as closely as possible. The accuracy of your GPS will be even better once the ritual is completed. Validate with OK and you are ready to set off again to conquer the world!
