Direction Indicator Fix for CityMaps2Go

Left this morning to explore a city.  Equipped with my iPhone 6 plus and CityMaps2Go I felt confident that I would be able to maneuver in the new city that I was exploring. Unfortuntately, that was not the case.

The blue dot was working fine and i could see my location on the city map, but as i pointed my iphone to the place that I wished to explore, the normal arrow that indicates which way I am headed was not appearing.

There is another option that did work enough to keep me headed in the right direction.  When back to my home base I found that my Apple compass app was not working correctly.

Once I changed a few settings on my iPhone the compass worked again and the cityMaps2go app started working correctly. 

I used the following steps to turn my compass calibration back on.
  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Select Privacy.
  3. Select Location Services.
  4. Select System Services at the bottom of the list of apps in the Location Services.
  5. Turn your compass calibration on and off.
