Moto G6 (US) compass or not???

2018-06-17, 16:38 PM

i can't get any definitive answer to this question. the reason i ask is that i've read specs that it does, but it doesn't act like it has one. 

 

case in point. whenever i use any app that requires one (outside of google maps), a little location icon appears on the notification band at the top. it happens with any compass apps i have, plus an app for mapping my bike rides. the icon stays there until i do a force stop of those apps. 

 

i'm confused. 

 

does the x4 have one? i'm trying to find a phone that does in the moto line.

All Moto G6 versions have a magnetometer, not all compass applications work properly but rather the fault of their creators. I use the compass on this topic (works without GPS) :

On my Moto G6 "Google Maps" also works without problems in offline mode with GPS enabled.

 

Here you have the specification according to the regions of the world:
