    Magnetic closures on cases

    Is there any concern about the effect of magnetic case closures on the screen and maybe the gps or compass?

    Screen, no.
    GPS, no.
    Compass, maybe. But the magnets are quite weak. If it has affected my compass, I couldn't tell.

    Thanks. I avoided cases with magnets for my Gtab but I guess I was just being paranoid.

    Bought a Sikai case with magnetic snaps... it drove the digital compass crazy!
    Google maps keeps prompting to reset the compass by waving in 8... very annoying.
    Best to avoid cases with magnetic closures or be prepared to render the digital compass useless.

    I bought one off Ebay. No problems whatsoever. Yours must have been one heck of a magnet.

    Hi chaneyd,

    this you get this one? Sikai MibroFiber protective case for Asus Eee Pad TF101 | eBay

    Google Maps compass mode had problems with this case.

    Also, the Smart Compass (Lite) app couldn't show magnetic north with this case. The magnetic field strength indicated peaked.

    I'm thinking to get the rooCase slim or ultra-slim like these two below. Anyone have them and do they have the magnet problems??

    The other question is can the cover be folded back flat so you can hold the tablet in portrait mode.

    Amazon.com: rooCASE Multi-Angle (Black) Leather Folio Case Cover for Asus Eee Pad Transformer 10.1-Inch TF101 Android Tablet Wi-Fi: Electronics

    Amazon.com: rooCASE Ultra Slim (Black) Leather Case Cover Cover with Stand for Asus Eee Pad Transformer 10.1-Inch TF101 Android Tablet Wi-Fi: Electronics

    Thanks

    Magnets are no problem for me on the caseen case, and the roo like mentioned above!

    I think it has to do with the power and placement of magnet.
