Compass reading on GPS 60cSx about 30 degrees too high


Calibrate the compass (Main menu --> Setup --> Calibration --> Compass), follow the instructions on the screen.
Also, see page 50 of the manual.
Calibration must be done outside - stay clear of any large metallic object (e.g. car).

You are in the mode that is used to navigate to a location. When the compass is up, hit the "quit" button, then select "stop go to" and it should stop.

New version of software (8.010) takes the compass preferences away. Compass always pointing north is available through the status bar settings. Found this on tomtom support under question, "How do compass settings work?" It has both new and old versions of how to access the compass.

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.

Your electronic compass is probably turned on, and if so, either it is not calibrated or you are not holding the GPS unit level.

Try turning off the electronic compass by holding the PAGE button in for a couple seconds. With the electronic compass turned off, the GPS will instead show direction of travel using the current track, which is probably what you are expecting.

Cheers!

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°
