    Does anyone know how to calibrate the compass in a 2013 ProStar?

    Is it possible you have a speaker, or other magnet-containing item near the compass?

    Is the compass error consistent no matter which way you are facing? For example, it seems to be about 30 deg in error? Or, it the compass pretty accurate when facing certain directions?

    The dealer will tell you how to calibrate it, I think there has to be facing specific directions and do something with one of the controls.

    Unless it’s been updated the Operators Manual is wrong, there’s an Iknow showing the correct method. I’ll get some pics.

    Try driving around in circles in an open lot, that's how you used to calibrate them. I know it sounds crazy.

    You may be crazy, but not because of this answer! LOL. That is how you calibrate with cars, might be the same with trucks.
