I have a 2018 Compass Limited. About 2 - 3 weeks ago it did a software update, now my GPS has me 2 hours away. Shows no roads, just bushes. Also the Compass on my Compass is wrong....Oh the irony, lol

Jeep told me drive around 5 times in a circle and turn it off and on again. Haven't had chance to try it yet, but sounds like a joke.

Anyone have this issue? And is this a legit fix?

There is a compass calibration procedure in the owners manual:

I just did a update for 70.00 on my Compass limited and now I have no navigational system. Have only had the car for a week

I guess you will need to drive around in a tight counter clockwise circle too, what an odd fix
Did driving in circles fix your problems?

Working from home these days, I have not had a chance to try it yet, But it does say to do this in the owners manual. Right now my Compass in my Compass is wrong, and GPS has me 2 hours away in the middle of nowhere. Hopefully this weekend I can try this.......Mean time if you have an Andriod , get the Andriod Auto app, connect phone via usb and bam you have GPD via google

I was one of the people that pointed out the instructions on the owner's manual, I was hoping it fixed your problem. Please let us know if it does work.

SO I tried driving in 5 tight counter clockwise circles, and it didn't do anything. Guess I need to contact Jeep
