Using the electronic compass properly, the following compass zone adjustment and compass calibration will be necessary.

Compass calibration zones


Compass calibration zones

1. Refer to the Compass calibration zones map shown above to verify that the compass zone setting is correct for your geographical location.

2. Press and hold the compass button for 3 to 6 seconds, and then release it. The zone number will be shown on the electronic compass display.

3. Press the compass button repeatedly until the correct zone number for your location is displayed.

4. Releasing the button for 3 seconds will exit the zone setting mode.

Compass calibration

1. For optimum calibration, switch off all nonessential electrical accessories (rear window defogger, heater/air conditioning system, spotlight, etc.) and ensure all doors are shut.

2. Drive to an open, level area away from large metallic objects or structures and make certain the ignition switch is in the ON position.

3. Press and hold the compass button for 6 to 9 seconds, and then release it. The compass will enter the calibration mode, then C and the direction will be displayed.

4. Drive slowly in a circle until C disappears from the display. Driving in two or three circles might be necessary. The compass is now calibrated.

5. Further calibration may be necessary should outside influences cause the compass to read inaccurately. You will notice any outside influence if the compass tends to read in only one particular direction. Should you encounter this situation, return to step 1 of the above procedure and recalibrate the compass.
