Compass variation adjustment

Compass variance, also known as magnetic declination, is the difference in angle between magnetic north and true geographic north. In some geographic locations, the difference between magnetic and geographic north is great enough to cause the compass to give false readings. If this problem occurs, the compass variance must be set.

To set the compass variance: (1) Using the Variance Settings map, find your geographic location and note the zone number (Fig.

2).

(2) Turn the ignition switch to the On position. If the compass/temperature data is not currently being displayed, momentarily depress and release the Step push button to step through the display options until you have reached the compass/temperature display.

(3) Depress both the U.S./Metric, and the Step push buttons and hold the buttons down until "VAR" appears in the display. This takes about five seconds.

(4) Release both of the push buttons. "VAR" along with the current variance zone will appear in the display.

(5) Momentarily depress and release the U.S./Metric push button to step through the zone numbers, until the zone number for your geographic location appears in the display.

(6) Momentarily depress and release the Step push button to enter the displayed zone number into the compass unit memory.

(7) Confirm that the correct directions are now indicated by the compass.
