That didn’t appear to interest Google’s Maps group when they decided to remove a very useful feature from the Android application, the compass widget.

The “new” compass widget is currently rolling out to all Google Maps for Android clients all around the world, so as long as you have version 10.62 (or higher) installed, you ought to have the option to utilize it.
