Calibrating the digital compass

The digital compass must be calibrated in the event of the following:

▷ The wrong point of the compass is displayed.

▷ The point of the compass displayed does not change despite changing the direction of travel.

▷ Not all points of the compass are displayed.

Procedure

1. Make sure that there are no large metallic objects or overhead power lines near the vehicle and that there is sufficient room to drive around in a circle.

2. Set the currently applicable compass zone.

3. Press and hold the control button for approx.

6 to 7 seconds so that "C" appears on the display. Next, drive in a complete circle at least once at a speed of no more than 4 mph/ 7 km/h. If calibration is successful, the "C" is replaced by the points of the compass.
