Hi, don't know if you figured it out, but I just (literally 10 minutes ago) calibrated the compass on my 2001 LandCruiser Prado by doing the following:

- Press the up and down arrows together until the inclinometer starts to blink.
- Then press the "Mode" button to switch to compass. The compass should start to blink.
- Drive your car in a 360 degree circle until the compass stops blinking.
- And that's about it.

Even though this is an old question I wanted to post the answer because I've been looking at this issue for a year and haven't found the solution online.

Please note that this page http://www.tlocuk.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?p=2302&sid=327bc81ab3b0160e82d7863b3e6417f5 pointed me in the right direction although the instructions there caused the inclinometer to be re-calibrated in my car. I had to tinker around and I figured out that if I pressed "mode", it switched to compass calibration.

Regards,

danls

How to do I get the compass and temperature gauge to work in the rear view mirror again. Directions are NW and SE all the time


Calibrate the compass built into the upper-right corner of the rearview mirror by holding the compass button (an "N" with two crossing lines) until your zone number appears. Determine your zone number by looking at the map in the owner's manual. Press the compass button until a "C" appears. Then drive in a circle three times at 5 mph or less in an uncongested area. The compass will automatically orient as a result of the circling.

How do i reset the compass on a 2006 dodge grand caravan


Hi Roger, I'm glad to help. Below is the procedure for resetting the compass on your vehicle.



COMPASS VARIATION ADJUSTMENT Compass variance, also known as magnetic declination, is the difference in angle between magnetic north and true geographic north. In some geographic locations, the difference between magnetic and geographic north is great enough to cause the compass to give false readings. If this problem occurs, the compass variance setting may need to be changed.
To set the compass variance:

1. Using the Variance Settings map, find your geographic location and note the zone number Figure 1.
22681.jpg Figure 1 - Variance Settings 2. Turn the ignition switch to the On position. If the compass/thermometer data is not currently being displayed, momentarily depress and release the C/T push button to reach the compass/thermometer display. 3. On Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) and Compass Mini-Trip Computer (CMTC) equipped vehicles depress the Reset push button and hold the button down until "VAR = XX" appears in the display. This takes about five seconds. On Compass Temperature Module (CT) equipped vehicles depress the C/T push button and US/M push button down until "VAR = XX" appears in the display. This takes about five seconds. 4. Release the push button(s). "VAR =XX " will remain in the display. "XX" equals the current variance zone setting. 5. On Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) and Compass Mini-Trip Computer (CMTC) equipped vehicles momentarily depress and release the STEP button to step through the zone numbers, until the zone number for your geographic location appears in the display. On Compass Temperature Module (CT) equipped vehicles depress the US/M push button to step through the zone numbers, until the zone number for your geographic location appears in the display. 6. On Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) and Compass Mini-Trip Computer (CMTC) equipped vehicles momentarily depress and release the RESET push button to enter the displayed zone number into the EVIC/CMTC module memory. On Compass Temperature Module (CT) equipped vehicles depress the C/T push button to enter the displayed zone number into the electronic module memory. 7. Confirm that the correct directions are now indicated by the compass.

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.

Adjsut compass


If it's a Donnelly or Gentex try Pressing the compass button until it displays a "C". Do this in a area where you can drive slowly in a circle several times. Like a empty parking lot. That should reset the unit. the owners manual should give you the correct procedure too.

Compass out of whack


You need to recalibrate the compass. The procedure is in your owners manual. Here are the basic steps.

First, you will need to verify that your compass zone is set to your current geographic location. Since I do not know where you are located, I cannot tell you the code. They are listed in the manual. (For example, So Cal is zone 5.)

Second, here is the compass calibration adjustment procedure:

Perform this adjustment in an open area free from steel structures and high voltage lines. For optimum calibration, turn off all electrical accessories (heater/air conditioning, wipers, etc.) and make sure all vehicle doors are shut.
1. Start the vehicle.
2. To enter the compass calibration mode, press and hold the button for greater than eight seconds. The display will then show CAL in the display window.
3. Drive the vehicle slowly (less than 3 mph) in circles until CAL indicator turns off. As many as 5 complete circles may be required.
4. The compass is now calibrated.
