Zone variation change procedure

Zone map
Zone map

The difference between magnetic north and geographical north is known as variance. In some areas, this difference can sometimes be great enough to cause false compass readings.

Follow these instructions to set the variance for your particular location if this happens:
1. Push the seconds. The current zone number will appear in the display. switch for more than 3 seconds. The current zone number will appear in the display.

2. Find your current location and variance number on the zone map.

NOTE:
Use zone number 5 for Hawaii.

3. Push the the new zone number appears in the display, then release the switch. After you release switch repeatedly until the new zone number appears in the display, then release the switch. After you release the switch, the display will show a compass direction within a few seconds.

- If the compass deviates from the correct indication soon after repeated adjustment, have the compass checked at a NISSAN dealer.

- The compass may not indicate the correct compass point in tunnels or while driving up or down a steep hill. (The compass returns to the correct compass point when the vehicle moves to an area where the geomagnetism is stabilized.)
