Is the legacy setting for the compass set to true north or magnetic north?
Can't seem to find an answer on the internet.

True North.  At least for Google apps like Google Earth and Google maps.  There is a Java object called "GeomagneticField
" that allows developers to implement whatever "north" (true, magnetic, grid etc.) they like.
