I purchased a Fenix 6 two weeks ago from Rebel sports.
Straight away I found the compass was out 90°(It shows west when I’m facing north).
I’ve tried calibrating and resetting but no luck so I contacted Garmin who got me to do the same but download the latest update via PC and load that way instead of Bluetooth through my phone.
This also didn’t work so Garmin said to take it back and swap it over which I’ve done.
Problem is the new one has the same issue.
I’ve tried calibrating it different locations around my local area. I’ve tried leaving it outside to get a decent GPS lock first. I’ve watched YouTube clips on how to calibrate.
I’ve also checked my north is correct via two mobiles and the sun itself.
I’m happy with the watch and don’t want to take it back again as I figured I’m doing something wrong to have the same issue twice but was hoping someone who has recently purchased a fenix 6 could please test their compass and let me know if it’s accurate? I’m wondering if it might be a software issue that just hasn’t been noticed yet?
Garmin Fenix 6 Compass out 90° Anyone Else Have This Issue?
