Manual Compass Calibration

If the compass appears erratic and the CAL indicator does not appear in the EVIC display, you must put the compass into the Calibration Mode manually, as follows:

NOTE: For the most accurate compass performance, the compass variance must be set before performing the manual compass calibration. The variance should be set for the zone where the vehicle is driven, per the zone map. For further information, refer to “Compass Variance.”

1. Turn ON the ignition switch.

2. Press the UP or DOWN button until the Setup (Customer-Programmable Features) menu is reached, then press the SELECT button.

3. Press the DOWN button until “Calibrate Compass” is displayed in the EVIC.

4. Press and release the SELECT button to start the calibration. The “CAL” indicator will be displayed in the EVIC.

5. Complete one or more 360–degree turns (in an area free from large metal or metallic objects) until the “CAL” indicator turns off. The compass will now function normally.
