If these are out of place then you need to have them repaired. It's not something you can do at home.

ZONE # PRESS & HOLD SET TO CHANGE: This display mode will be displayed when you are manually calibrating the system.

My compass doesn't point north, what is the reason?


The reason why your compass doesn't point to the north anymore is because the compass has been exposed to articles with iron content, like the compass being placed next to a pair of scissors or a knife, microwaves, and high tension wires.

I need a new compass for tasco 322 BCW waterproof binoculars. Any ideas where I can find one?


Open the battery door, clean all inside with Alcohol & Q-tip. Check that the AG10 or 389 batteries are positive up. Now the compass dial pivots on a shaft. It seems to get caught. Take a strong magnet and rotate it above the compass lying horizontal and spin it until it spins freely. Take it away slowly. Does the compass settle down to accurate heading? If so place back in the top of the model 322BCW observing the glued in marks on the clear window area. Re-screw in, press brass button red LED should light.. If NOT recheck for corrosion. Regards, Don

The letter C is flasing in my dash board


The flashing "C" in the Instrument cluster if for the Compass. Here's the bulletine...

Subject: Compass Displays a Steady or Flashing "C" In Place Of Directional Heading
Models: 2008 Saturn VUE built on or after 11/09/2007
This PI was superseded to update Recommendation/Instructions. Please discard PIT4699.

The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.

Condition/Concern: The compass displays a steady or flashing "C" in place of directional heading.

To return to a normal heading display, press and hold the cluster stem for approximately 2 Seconds.

The displayed heading is not correct after driving for 30 seconds, use the following "Compass Calibration" routine.

Press cluster stem until the Season Odometer is displayed (Not Trip A or B).

Press and hold cluster Stem until the solid "C" is displayed. To the right of the "C" will be the "Zone". Refer to the variation zone map above for the correct setting. Turn the stem Right to increase, Left to decrease. It will take a few seconds for a change of zone to be updated in the display.

Once the Zone is correct, press the Stem to display the Flashing "C". Do not touch the Stem again until the direction is learned. Drive the vehicle in slow circles in an open area until you see a compass (oc tant) heading replace the flashing C.

Note: Vehicles built prior to 11/09/2007 were not built with a compass.

Recommendation/Instructions:
Engineering is aware of this condition and is in the process of root causing. It is known that the Remote Compass Module (RCM), Body Control Module (BCM) and Cluster hardware are not at fault, and these parts should not be replaced.

Reinforce with the PDI technicians that the Compass Zone and calibration is still required as part of PDI.

Hope helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

How do you reset the compass??


  1. Stop the vehicle and place it in "Park."


  2. Press and hold the "Set" button on the compass for about two seconds. The button is located directly below the compass to the right.


  3. Press the "E/M" button repeatedly until the correct zone is displayed. If you do not know your zone, you might have to contact your dealer for this information.


  4. Press and hold the "Set" button for about two seconds until the display flashes, indicating that the compass is reset.

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.

Tasco OS36 Binoculars battery replacement


The screw you removed holds the battery cover in place. The cover is roughly rectangular with rounded corners. Once the screw is out, gently insert a sharp blade into the hairline crack between the cover and the binocular body and pry the cover off. The two watch batteries will be obvious.
