How to get compass on Google Maps? Calibrate Compass on Google Maps

Following a map without a compass is like accounting without a calculator. While it's not impossible, its inconvenient. In today’s digital era, maps have become an app that can be used through your smartphone and compasses are looked down upon as antiques.
 
Compasses are extremely important while exploring.areas and since people don’t carry compasses anymore Google provides an inbuilt compass that can be accessed quite easily. However, you can get a compass only on those devices that come with a magnetometer. 
 

To activate the compass and get directions:

  1. Open Google Maps
  2. Double tap the location button in the bottom left corner of the screen
