The built-in compass on my Playbook shows the opposite to the real direction (i.e., shows south for north, east for west, etc) The compasses in the navigation app and the sky app I downloaded also show the opposite direction, but I downloaded a simple compass app and it shows the proper direction. The Playbook's GPS works. How do I calibrate the built-in compass so it shows the correct direction? I have tried pressing "Reset" several times but it makes no difference.

I'm referring to the magnetometer. Playbook 16 GB OS2.1. The on-screen compass I was referring to where I tried to reset may be part of the "What's Up" app rather that coming from Playbook. As I said, this app and "Navigator" both show the opposite to the correct direction, while the "Compass" app is correct, based on sun position.
