If you see ‘‘- -’’ in the direction

If you see ‘‘- -’’ in the direction display when you turn the ignition switch to the ON (II) position, the compass is self-calibrating.

The compass may need to be manually calibrated after exposure to a strong magnetic field. If the compass display changes to ‘‘- -’’ and the calibrate indicator blinks, or the display does not show any direction and the compass is not selfcalibrating, do the following.

1. Drive the vehicle slowly in three complete circles.

NOTE: Do this procedure in an open area, away from buildings, power lines, and other vehicles.

2. When the display goes from ‘‘- -’’ or blank to an actual heading, the unit is calibrated and the display returns to normal.
