VIRB 360 compass unstable

Since recently in my VIRB 360 footage the compass data is broken. Compass lock stabilisation doesn't really lock it, the view rotates from time to time. Follow Path stabilisation often starts looking sideways, but then during the video rotates, sometimes looking forward and sometimes backward. GPS data looks fine so far as I can tell, and accelerometer also looks good, because Stabilize Only stabilisation works perfectly.

  • I confirm the compass problem. It's forging directions. Question for manufacturers:

    1. Is it possible to calibrate the compass in virb 360 ?

    2. the G-metrix data (compass) manually applied to the video or photo is passive. Overlaying the geographical coordinates always downloads the contents of the gpx file. In case of a compass this does not work. Overlaying a compass manually on a movie or photo does not tell you anything about the actual world orientation.
