Automatic Compass Calibration
When the vehicle is new, the compass may appear erratic
and the EVIC will display “CAL” until the compass is
calibrated. To complete the calibration process, drive
slowly (5 mph/ 8 km/h) in one or more complete circles
in an area, free from magnetic material until the CAL
indicator displayed in the EVIC turns off. The Compass
will now function normally.
Manual Compass Calibration
If the compass appears erratic and the “CAL” indicator
does not appear in the EVIC display, you must put the
compass into the Calibration Mode manually as follows:
1. Turn on the ignition switch.
2. Press the MENU button until Personal Settings
(Customer-Programmable Features) menu is reached.
3. Press the SCROLL button until “Calibrate Compass” is
displayed in the EVIC.
4. Press and release the FUNCTION SELECT button to
start the calibration. The “CAL” indicator will be dis-
played in the EVIC.
