I had mine working once - can't remember where I saw it. Oh yeah, the manual.

Haven't used it since so can't remember now. Why not read up and report back?

Come to think of it, I think you just tap it, then it tells you to turn the device over a couple of times, and it sets.

The compass can only be enabled if the map is locked to your current position. Tap the blue dot and the compass will ungrey
