Default GPS Status & Toolbox Issue

Compass is jittery on v4.3.81 and v4.3.82.
v4.3.78 works fine
Does anyone have the issue or just me...
Note: I'm on Stock ROM, non rooted.

Do a check with to see results are same, https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...tcross.gpstest


GPS Status & Toolbox seems to have
KNOWN FIRMWARE ISSUES (please do not report them):
- Samsung phones: Because of a firmware bug, they may report extreme battery consumption for GPS Status even if it is not running at all (other programs using sensors are affected too). This is harmless and no power is consumed! Just ignore it and let's hope that a future firmware upgrade will fix this on your phone.

- Droid 3: The initial Droid 3 firmware does not implement the satellite status API so you will not see the satellites and the signal strength bars. The rest of the features should work properly.

- Motorola phones: On some phones, turning your phone to airplane mode will turn off the GPS receiver, too. This is a hardware limitation.

- Droid Charge: Reports 0 altitude.

- LG Optimus: The phone cannot report the satellite SNR values correctly (all signal bars will be maxed out).

- Nexus One/S: With Andoid 2.3 it cannot report NMEA sentences. This means that the DOP/HDOP/VDOP values are not available.
