Default I have compass issues.

I'm not sure if any of you have experienced this before, but my auto-dimming mirror is screwed up. The compass reads only West and North West. No matter which way I'm going.

Anyone have a clue how to fix it? I really don't want to shell out $169 for a new mirror from a dealership, and this is annoying the hell out of me. Leaving it unlplugged gets to me, too. Heh.

Thanks

You have to recalibrate it, which is described in the owner's manual. You hold down one of the buttons until it starts blinking (forgot which one) and drive slowly in a small circle until it stops. Problem solved.

yep, i believe it's the left button. leave your finger on it until it says CAL for calibrate, then drive in circles slowly.

make sure your time zone is correct also. Hold down the right button if you need to change your time zone or check it.

Actually, these are not time zones. They are geomagnetic zones due to the offset of true and magnetic north. It has nothing to do with time and does not correspond to the times zones. The instructions and zones are in your owner's manual.
