Why does the Vehicle Direction not function properly?
Door Ding Defender utilizes the internal Apple iPhone Compass app which at times does not function properly. i.e. Compass show’s North when in fact it is pointing in another direction
Unfortunately this is an Apple iOS anomaly
I have found that if you start the Apple compass first and let it run in the back ground for 10 to 15 minutes, it will calibrate to the proper North/South/East/West direction. You can then use the Door Ding Defender app with confidence!
