Yup, just checked the compass with PhotoPills and it works again properly.
Compass works after upgrade to 5.150.

Update V5.150 on TA1012 here. Compas does not show the correct heading.I happen to know where south, east and west are around my garden and the Nokia 8 will show "true" south for about 30 seconds after launching any compass app. After turning on my heels a few times, compass is off an 1/8th to West (showing +/- 211° where it showed 180° South a couple of seconds ago) everytime I try it.
Panic over, i gave the Nokia 8 a couple of
reboots and the compass got better and better after each reboot to where
it is now following the real compass very accurately, i am not sure
what that was about but it was like my árse to start with.
What do you mean "calibrate every time"? Calibration should be done once and then be ok for a good length of time and/or travel distance. You can check the calibration status with Google Maps, blue dot and bottom menu.
Hi @martin.fd that is very interesting. Can you eliminate the possibility of other magnetic disturbances in the vicinity? Are the results repeatable?Cheers
