Calibrate your Garmin GPS compass

Calibrate your Garmin GPS compass

We get many phone calls from people telling us their GPS is pointing them in the wrong direction. The question we ask is - When did yiou last calibrate your GPS Compass?

This often gets met will a wall of silence.

So every time you change your batteries or you move more than 100 miles since you last switched on your GPS please do calibrate your compass.

Below is a short YouTube film of me calibrating my oregon GPS. All the other Garmin units are very similar.

Jon, thanks for that. I had never calibrated my compass but now I know how!
