I am having this issue also, it is off by a considerable amount.

- show compass, draw a path of 30 deg (per the box in the corner)
- info shows:

True or Map Bearing: 24°
Compass Bearing: 23° 43' 48" (23.73°) adjusted for magnetic declination.


The offset seems to depend on the direction chosen. For example, select 270 deg and the path info is ok:

True or Map Bearing: 270°
Compass Bearing: 269° 43' 48" (269.73°) adjusted for magnetic declination.



Unfortunately, this makes the otherwise extremely tool useless
