G3 Compasses Don't Work

G3 compasses off by 90 degrees. Test with a compass app or Google sky map. Calibration does NOT fix this issue. Do not suggest factory reset as that is an unacceptable waste of time. It is a common lg problem on g2 and also g4. Please treat and post if you have this issue. It is ludicrous that such a basic function doesn't work.

If you feel your device is malfunctioning then it has a 1yr warranty. Visit a kiosk and explain what's happening and they will send it in for repair.

Of the numerous complaints I've read, the 'fix' comes in the form of a software/firmware update from LG. This according to numerous posts that date from as far back as November 2014. The articles I read were posters on the Sprint (US) network using the LS990 CDMA variant of the LG G3. I wasn't able to find any reports of the Canadian variant (LG G3 D852) affected by the GPS issue. Hopefully the next update your LG G3 receives will correct this problem.
