Casio Pathfinder Digital Compass will not calibrate

I replaced the batteries in my Casio Pathfinder and now the digital compass direction finder is approximately 90 degrees off magnetic north. I have tried both calibration procedures in the manual and this failed to fix the problem. Any suggestions?

    I have a similar problem. Compass is stuck to one direction with respect to the watch. No matter what orientation I use it it aways shows the 3 o'clock direction. That happened after I pointed it towards a magnet though.

Hi john30x,

You have to calibrate the compass.
1. Press the upper right button (switching to compass mode)
2. Press and hold upper left button. The "CALL" will appear on the display. You are in compass calibrating mode.
3. Rotate the watch horizontally (around his vertical axis) slowly, so to be sure that he point the North at least 2 times.
4. Now press the upper left button again to input the
declination (this is the angle between the magnetic and real pole). It is different for the area around the world, that you want to explore.
5. Switch between the positions of the cipher by pressing bottom left.
6. Change the cipher by pressing bottom right.
7.
Switch between the active position by pressing bottom left. Now you have to enter East or West declination
8. If you are ready press the upper left. "END" of calibration will appear on the screen

Once you calibrate and set the declination you can use the the compass by pressing upper right button. As the compass is very sensitive It is good idea to calibrate it on a field, far away of metal objects and electromagnetic fields (cables, ect.). You need to calibrate the compass each time you want to use it by different surrounding.

Remember the compass function of your watch need much more energy than the watch itself. Don`t worry to change the battery when dead. The water resistance remains good even after. Very robust and accurate device. I hope that should help.

I lost my owner's manual for my Casio SGW-100B. When I try to use the compass it asks me to please calibrate


Above link no longer valid. Here's the current one:

Also, the key was inputting the correct #, in this case 3157 - NOT the 100B - at the following page:
http://world.casio.com/wat/download/en/manual/
I had almost given up when I looked again at the back of my watch and found the other number.

Cmpass (COM)
The integrated compass tells you the direction (e.g.SSW for south­southwest) as well as the number of degrees. To determine a direc­tion,hold the watch horizontally with the 12 o'clock position poin­ting in thedirection you want to know.
General information about the compass
The compass always points to the magnetic north pole.Maps are always drawn in alignment with the geographic north pole (verticallyupwards at 90 ). The declination angle denotes the deviation between themagnetic north pole and the geographic north pole. This deviation depends onwhere you are located. To obtain exact results, the declination angle must beentered into the compass.Remember to change the angle when travelling abroad.Within the UKthere is no need to change the angle because deviati­ons are only slight.Overleaf you will find a table showing the declination angles for a number ofcities around the world.A fault has occurred if the display shows"ERR" while taking a direction or calibrating the compass. Thecompass must be re-calibrated (refer to section after next) .

Compass wont work correctly


if your hands aren't straight when you use the compass try this to sync the hands.

1. Press and hold the middle button to enter T-Touch mode.
2. Press the centre area on the face twice to display 24hr/12hr
3. Press and hold the middle button to enter T-Touch mode untill screen says sync.The hands will face 1200.
4. Press either the upper (East) or lower (West) button to adjust the compass hands. They should both face 1200.
5. Press the middle button to get back to 'regular' compass mode. Note that your offset setting will still show in the digital area.
