Magnetic field interference is referring to the compass not the GPS. To calibrate the compass get into an open grassy area. A bad calibration (which it sounds like you may have done) may have been the cause of your crash.
When looking at compass in sensor state you should see numeric values in both, with one of them marked 'active'. This is normal and you will see similar for IMU. If there were a fault on this active compass then the device would switch and make the other active.
Are you in an open area when checking for GPS ?

I was outside in an open area and I calibrated compass. GPS working now but still have the same problem with "magnetic field interference". I dont see numeric values on first compass just disconected, second is ok

Looks like the first compass is faulty, damaged in the crash you had. One of the moderators might be able to confirm this.

If it were just the compass then it could probably be fixed by a landing gear replacement. But there may be hidden damage, in which case it would be best sending it in.

Sorry for your crash, Mazzy. Did you contact tech support and send it in for further evaluation?

Just to clarify, did you attempt to fix the unit yourself or was it fixed at the Europe Repair Facility?

When you calibrate your compass make sure you are not near any magnetic fields or metal objects.
