What should I know about using the electronic compass?
If your car is equipped with an electronic compass, you’ll find it displayed in the center information console (note: this is not available on all Fusions). It provides handy direction information, but there are a few things you should know:
Strong electric and magnetic fields can and will affect the compass.
In most instances, your compass will auto-correct to the right direction within a few days of interference.
Compass readings can also be affected by the proximity of tall buildings, bridges and other things.
You may need to set the right zone setting to ensure the accuracy of your compass.
