How do you calibrate the compass?
If you have an EX-L or an EX-L V6 without the navigation system, you may need to calibrate your compass periodically. There are several reasons your compass may lose its bearings, including a dead battery, or even driving near power lines. Thankfully, it’s easy to calibrate. In fact, it does it almost completely by itself. Here’s what you need to know:
Turn the key to II.
The compass will self-calibrate at this point.
Turn the ignition to II.
Press and hold the menu button. You’ll hear a beep.
Choose calibration from the menu commands.
Press enter and then press enter again when you see Push Cal Start.
Drive the vehicle in two complete circles (relatively wide) at a low rate of speed.
