GPS working? - gfoster - 03-11-2018

I've just been reading (on the main pages) about the disabled / non functional compass in the shipping devices. Does this mean that GPS doesn't work either? i.e. will realtime mapping apps - like Google maps / Co-pilot Live work correctly on this device (under Android of course)

My order in in the 6000's so I'm guessing it will be a while before I receive mine, so reall feedback from an actual user would be great.

Thanks

The compass runs from the magnetometer not the GPS. In the U.S., at least, GPS, working, is required by law in cellular telephones.

Thanks for confirming.
