Hi all,

since the Pie Update, the compass in my Nokia 8 shows every direction except North - anyone else with this problem?!

  • Hi @martin.fd
    I just had to recalibrate it and it worked like expected.
  • Same here, compass is not working correctly, it's showing east when I point to north etc.
    Recalibration made things even worse, now it seems to be swapped by 180 degrees.
  • Same here

    Hi everybody. You have need to calibrate the compass. For example, through Google Maps.
    1. Tap the blue dot on Google Maps that indicates your location
    2. The window opens and click Compass Calibration on the bottom left.
    3. Follow the instructions according to the diagram shown.
    Hope to help  :)

    update: Sorry, the post I put in the wrong place and I can not delete it :D
  • Tried calibration several Times - doesn't change anything  :s
  • Not sure if it works for you but I finally got my compass to work post-Pie upgrade by enabling Force full GNSS measurements in developer options.



  • Spoke too soon. Went haywire again :(
  • I also had problems with the compass after I upgraded to pie. It was 180 degrees wrong and recalibrating did not help in any way. Also tried multiple apps which claimed they could solve the problem (not!). After downgrading to Oreo the compass worked immediately again. I hope they will solve this problem soon!

    TA-1004. Same problem with the inverted 180 degrees heading. Tried recalibration compass with the figure 8 movement to no avail.

    Same here, model TA-1004. Compass first was off by 90 degrees, after calibration it went to 180 degrees off. Not seen on Oreo
  • Same problem ta-1004
  • I am still on beta, TA-1004 and it is also off by 180 degree.

    also the compass is 180 off . TA-1004
  • Also broken on TA-1052 all compass and stargazing apps with compass support are broken. "Sensoren Multitool" by weRed Software reports constant good magnetometer date, but the compass flipps around and is even reacting to horizontal orientation.

    Wt* it's also not accurate on mine (TA-1004). Hope this gets fixed soon cause I'm gonna be relying on my gps most of the time on my upcoming vacation! 
  • This bug may literally cost lives, i wouldn't be surprised if people around the world would get lost in the outdoors with the compass on their phones as the only navigation tool... They shouldn't be that poorly equipped in the first place, but things happen.

    I think the severity of this bug should be rather high and get proper attention. Let's try to find the bug report on Google's issue tracker and vote for it accordingly

    GPS is still working fine and in many navigation or outdoor apps (like Locus map etc.) you can choose whether to use GPS and/or compass

    With all due respect: I would never rely on my smartphone alone outdoors!
  • Nobody says you should, but if your phone is the only navigation tool you have (through the compass app)...

    @martin.fd thanks for the confirmation, I was expecting more because the Android 8.1 build numbers are longer.
