Zone variation change procedure

Zone variation change procedure

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. Press and hold the about button for about 11 seconds or the button 8 seconds. The current zone number will for about 8 seconds. The current zone number will appear in the display. Release the button.
2. Find your current location on the zone map.

Refer to the illustration.
3. Press the the button repeatedly or to toggle through the zone numbers the button repeatedly to toggle through the zone numbers until the desired number appears in the display.

2. Calibrate the compass by driving the vehicle in three complete circles at a maximum speed of 5 MPH (8 km/h).
3. After completing the circles, the display should return to normal.

● Do not install a ski rack, antenna, etc., which are attached to the vehicle by means of a magnet. They affect the operation of the compass.
● When cleaning the mirror, use a paper towel or similar material dampened with glass cleaner. Do not spray glass cleaner directly on the mirror as it may cause the liquid cleaner to enter the mirror housing.
