Q: How does the zone selection affect the compass?

How does the zone selection affect the compass?

Magnetic north and true north are not the same in most areas. Because of this, your compass may need to be calibrated for the right zone. This can be done easily.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Turn the key to II.

  2. Press and hold the Menu button. When it beeps, let go.

  3. Choose Zone from the Menu and press Enter.

    • You should now see the zone number for your compass. You’ll need to compare this to the zone map in your owner’s manual on page 254. If it’s not right, change it by using the selector knob (turning the knob changes the zone number).
  4. Press enter on the selector knob to set the zone.
