Calibrating the compass

Calibrating the compass

The direction display deviates from the true direction determined by the earth’s

The direction display deviates from the true direction determined by the earth’s magnetic field. The amount of deviation varies according to the geographic position of the vehicle.

If you cross over one of the map boundaries shown in illustration, the com- pass will deviate.

To obtain higher precision or perfect calibration, refer to “Deviation calibra- tion”.

it is safe to drive in a circle. Stop the vehicle in a place where it is safe to drive in a circle.

Press the switch until a number (1 to 15) appears on the compass dis- play.

the map above, select the num- ber of the zone where you are. Press the switch and referring to the map above, select the num- ber of the zone where you are.

If the direction is displayed several seconds after adjustment, the cali- bration is complete.

 - Circling calibration

When “C” appears on the display, drive the vehicle at 5 mph (8 km/h) or less in a circle until a direction is displayed.

If there is not enough space to drive in a circle, drive around the block until the direction is dis- played.

 - Conditions unfavorable to correct operation

 - Conditions unfavorable to correct operation

The compass may not show the correct direction in the following conditions:

• The vehicle is stopped immediately after turning.

• The vehicle is on an inclined surface.

• The vehicle is in a place where the earth’s magnetic field is subject to interfer- ence by artificial magnetic fields (underground car park/parking lot, under a steel tower, between buildings, roof car park/parking lot, near an intersection, near a large vehicle, etc.).

• The vehicle has become magnetized.

(There is a magnet or metal object near the inside rear view mirror.) • The battery has been disconnected.

• A door is open.

CAUTION

 - While driving the vehicle

Do not adjust the display. Adjust the display only when the vehicle is stopped.

 - When doing the circling calibration

Secure a wide space, and watch out for people and vehicles in the vicinity. Do not violate any local traffic rules while performing circling calibration.

NOTICE

 - To avoid the compass malfunctions

Do not place magnets or any metal objects near the inside rear view mirror.

Doing this may cause the compass sensor to malfunction.

 - To ensure normal operation of the compass

• Do not perform a circling calibration of the compass in a place where the earth’s magnetic field is subject to interference by artificial magnetic fields.

• During calibration, do not operate electric systems (moon roof, power windows, etc.) as they may interfere with the calibration.
