My compass needs to be calibrated. In the manual it suggests going to the top of any Audio Source and holding the button for five seconds to get calibration screen. I must be doing something wrong. Any suggestions?

Welcome to the Forum! Glad to see your first post.

Please introduce yourself and tells us about your TLX experiences. :)

Haven't had to calibrate my compass so I don't know the answer.

Since you did not list your model, understand that this is only for ones without nav systems.

I am sorry, mine has NAV. Does that make a difference?
I've looked in the manuals and they don't appear to have a different procedure for the models with Nav and the ones without.
That is because there is NO procedure for Nav models. The compass is from the GPS.
While your post may sound logical, where do you find that the calibration is only for non-NAV models? Where do you find that the compass gets it information from? I read my manual and I see there is no clarification if this is for NAV or non-NAV systems.

My compass seems to work fine, but I would still like to know your references. Thanks. :)

There was a thread on this a while back. Can't find it now, though. But I propose a survey:

Everyone see if they can raise the compass calibration screen and report back the answer and if they have NAV or not.

Certainly I cannot get the screen on my Nav system.

Thanks @sbillard . I can accept this to be true, but I would love to see the thread. :)

I tried to get into calibrate last night but couldn't figure it out or get in. I have NAV.

I tired it today as well and I wasn't able to get into the Compass calibration settings.

Every GPS that I've owned has had a compass built in so it would make sense that the car would pull it from the GPS. Having said that, we need to have someone without the NAV system to try the procedure in the manual to see if it works.
