Constantly calibrating compass in Google Maps

I keep having to recalibrate compass when using Google Maps every usage or so.  Why is s10 and S10e losing its compass calibration so often?

The result is that I never have an accurate positioning and routing. Especially when I drive. Is my phone broken??

 

So annoying

If there are no relevant software updates @Venom7000 then maybe have a Samsung Experience Store or Samsung Service Centre take a look.

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.

Hello,

This is not issue with just my phone. Many Samsung users experience this. My work phone s7 also has this problem.

 

I dont live in a country where there are any such Samsung customer supports.

Also the phone is out of warranty.

 

Just to prove how this happens to many people I present you this reddit thread:

https://amp.reddit.com/r/galaxys10/comments/di1i2v/galaxy_s10_google_maps_gps_go_crazy_every_so_ofte...

 

There are many of these threads (few of them on this forum too)

 

We need to launch a massive "support ticket"
