Note 9 compass error after Pie update

Since my Note 9 updated to 9.0 and One UI the compass is not working accurately.  About 90 degrees off. I've calibrated it several times (*#0*#) with no success. Anyone else experience this and is there a fix?  This is happening without a case on the phone so there is no interference from that.

Hello,

 

Does this happen when your device is in safe mode?

Yeah, that's great except it says there are no locations in my area.  I am paying for Samsung Premium Care each month and I am running into all sorts of dead ends trying to get someone to help fix this.

I can understand your frustration. What other troubleshooting steps have you tried? If you haven't already tried, try clearing the cache data partition.

Did that already with no luck. Is there any way to roll back the update and then perhaps reinstall it?

Wow... I posted this in another forum and I've found no help.  I got the same problem.  Note 9 compass should be indicating north, but shows East.  Countless calibrations have had no help.  Testing the sensors show that the compass IS Calibrated.  I thought I was going crazy for a bit.
