When I am in heavy timber and not moving at a good pace my compass points in the opposite direction it is supposed to. What am I doing wrong? When I walk down the road it works perfectly.

The Garmin 12 GPS loses sattelite reception in heavy woods and that's why it doesn't work properly. It's not a fault and you're not doing anything wrong. All Garmin 12s are the same.

The compass points in the opposite direction. While hunting in Ontario, I was lucky that I had a compass with me or I would still be there!


Hello,

Electronic compasses tend to be very scuwy, your may need to be calibrated if not re calibrated to get the proper bearing.


Hope this helps!

Compass is no longer pointing North


I had the same issue. I found that if you re-calibrate the compass the same way you did the first time, then it will act properly. I've had to do this a couple of times and it works.

Compass dial turned opposite direction


you might be able to reverse the poles back to normal with a magnet but be careful not to scratch face or get it closer than you need to to the insides of the watch.

Do you have your unit set for north up or track up? This might cause this problem.

The Alternator only comes into play AFTER the vehicle is running so I would bench test the starter for excessive starter draw. If the starter tests good I would change out the Solenoid. That may explain the guages reading incorrectly. As to the compass, possibly a shorted wire near there could cause it to spin. Try relocating it.
