How do I calibrate the compass?

If your compass displays the letter C, then it needs to be calibrated before it can show you what direction you are driving in. To calibrate the compass, drive your vehicle in three full circles, while traveling at less than 5 MPH. The compass will also automatically calibrate when you have naturally traveled three complete circles during your normal driving.
