I have the top piece on the dash with the 2 instruments, right side with the funny compass. This compass stopped working after I attached the battery (had it disconnected for the summer)...compass is not displaying the direction any more and has a  lot of 'N's on the display. These 'N' probably mean: No good  Shocked
Anyone who knows what is wrong here?

It needs re calibration easy done look in the manual.

You press a couple of buttons and drive in a complete circle from memory.

Aaah, calibration. That makes sense.
Unfortunately I don't have any manual for this car. Can anyone give me this manual?
Thanks, Martin

Press the up and down arrow simultaneously
Press the up arrow and the compas will blink
Do a full slow circle within 1 minute

That should be it

Sorry, I tried to calibrate the compass today according the given manual but I was not successful.

This is what happened:

'Press the up and down arrow simultaneously'   > This made the clinometer light up (all lights there)
'Press the up arrow and the compass will blink'  > This made the climometer blink (NOT the compass)
Do a full slow circle within 1 minute

I also couldn't find a manual on the forum. Therefore I am asking again for the correct manual.
Can someone look it up for me?

- Press the up and down arrows together until the inclinometer starts to blink.
- Then press the "Mode" button to switch to compass. The compass should start to blink.
- Drive your car in a 360 degree circle until the compass stops blinking.
- And that's about it.

Hi Andy and everyone

The following worked for me finally:

1) press up/down buttons simultaneously
2) press Mode once
3) press up button once (Now compass is blinking)
4) do the turn

Maybe there are different  models
