    Another poster said the the a magnet is built into it's case which greatly effects the P4 compass. Has anyone found this to be a problem? I just ordered a K1 to use for my new P4.

    Just to clarify it won't affect the P4 compass but the built in tablet compass. Its horrible.

    There are 5 strong magnets inside the back cover of the Shield + the speakers.

    Removing them didn't help for me.
    Some users have commented that recent software updates have improved things for them.

    They are to help hold a cover and they also allow you to use the Shield as the world's biggest fridge magnet.

    This is not true. The iPad's themselves have 16 Nydimium Magnets in them and it does not cause any issue.
