Calibrating the Compass

NOTE: You must calibrate the electronic compass outdoors. Do not stand near objects that influence magnetic fields, such as cars, buildings, or overhead power lines.

Your device was already calibrated at the factory, and the device uses automatic calibration by default. If the Laser Locate™ feature is not working properly, for example, after moving long distances or after extreme temperature changes, you can manually calibrate the compass.

NOTE: The Laser Locate and compass features are available only on A1i models.
  1. From the main menu, select Device settings symbol > Calibrate Compass.
  2. Follow the on-screen instructions.
