    Thanks for posting. Currently, the compass needle to indicate north when you rotate the map on Android is not available and I can definitely see the value in adding this indicator. I've opened an internal feature request to add this function to the Android app.

    In the meantime, you can reset the map to be oriented north by tapping the navigation icon 3x.

    When will this get resolved? This request is over a year old.  Should be an easy fix.

    I'm leaving on a trip in 5 days and would be nice to have a compass that works offline on Android Gaia GPS basic.  (A compass seems basic?)  I am UNABLE TO ACATIVATE THE COMPASS ON MY GAIA GPS Android app: cannot slide the compass choice to "ON" under the expand screen menu that appears when you press and hold screen expansion.  Can you reply?  Is there another way to bring the compass needle on the screen?  Thanks so much

    @ryderdf64,

    It appears your device does not have a compass sensor, which is why this feature cannot be activated in the app.
