Compass warning

Some devices, such as HTC phones, display a warning in the notification whenever your device's compass cannot be used.

Your device's compass detects the device's orientation relative to the compass points, using the earth's magnetic poles. In some circumstances this compass may not work.

This setting has no other effect than to disable the warning in the notification area.
