Incorrect. These gadgets rely on a GPS satelite signal (which may get blocked inside a car / building) and have nothing to to with Earth's magnetic field. Other than magnetic compasses (and systems that rely on a derived magnetic compass signal, but these are all adjustable to allow for a changing deviation), there is nothing we use today that is affected.
