How to fix inaccurate compass on Android device?

The compass on my Android phone (HTC One) is way off. Is there a way to calibrate the compass on Android devices?

You might try our Compass app which includes a Test function to see if your phone will work as a compass and a Full Calibration option which can help with offset and scale errors in the factory calibration of the phone's magnetometer. http://www.zelwyke.com
It sounds like wstark has it right on how to fix your Android compass.

Yes, you can easily recalibrate an Android phone’s compass. Basically, just hold it up in front of you and wave it around in a figure 8 pattern. Yes, I know that sounds silly, but I am being completely serious. I think you can also spin it on its 3 axises, but the figure 8 thing is much easier.
