How do you set the zone on the compass?

If your car is equipped with an electronic compass, you might find that you need to set the zone correctly. This is because magnetic north and true north are not always the same – it depends on where you’re located geographically. Here’s how to set the correct zone.

  1. Refer to the zone map on page 77 of your owner’s manual.

  2. Turn your ignition to ON.

  3. Press the 9 and 7 Presets on your radio.

  4. Hold those buttons at the same time for about 5 seconds.

  5. You should see “ZONE XX” in the center display.

  6. Press both the 9 and 7 buttons again until you see the right zone number displayed.

  7. Release the buttons when the right zone is chosen.

  8. The compass should now display the right direction.
