I would make sure the compass is turned on. When it is off navigation tools are hard to use.

What is difference between prismatic and surveyor compass

There is the explanation from Wikipedia. Hope this helps. A surveyor's compass is a specialized compass made to accurately measure heading of landmarks and measure horizontal angles to help with map making. These were already in common use by the early 18th century and are described in the 1728 Cyclopaedia. The bearing compass was steadily reduced in size and weight to increase portability, resulting in a model that could be carried and operated in one hand. In 1885, a patent was granted for a hand compass fitted with a viewing prism and lens that enabled the user to accurately sight the heading of geographical landmarks, thus creating the prismatic compass.

The orginal compass was deleted.

Tom Tom changed the software (one of the upgrades you get through Tom Tom HOME) to remove most of the compass functions but the manual still refers to setting it up so it appears as a menu item when you first operate the unit but then subsequently disappears if you update the unit software as it did on mine.

It is talked about in some of the Satnav forums but there don't appear to be any solutions.

Sorry that is not much help.

Hi, the DOT (Direction Of Travel) arrow will only appear on the Compass page when you are navigating.
  1. Go to the 'Main Menu'
  2. Select 'Find'
  3. Select 'Waypoints'
  4. Select a waypoint
  5. Select the 'Go TO' button
Once you are on the Compass page you should have the DOT arrow as long as you have a sat lock.

Garmin HCx GPS unit

The Vista HCx has an electronic compass. You don't need to be moving for it to work, but you do need to calibrate it. To calibrate the compass:
  1. Go to the Main Menu
  2. Select Setup
  3. Select Calibration
  4. You will be asked "Which Sensor Would You Like To Calibrate", select Compass
  5. You will see a page that says "To Calibrate Compass: Slowly Turn Two Full Circles In The Same Direction While Holding The Unit Level", select Enter and do this.
You need to hold the unit level for the Magnetic Compass to work correctly. The specs for a properly calibrated compass are +/- 5°
