For navigation..LOL:laugh::laugh:The compass popped up today for the first time after nine months. I haven't ever bothered with it since I didn't have the nav option. The display advised me to consult with my "studio" to have it installed. The compass followed my course changes as I went home. I'm not really interested in getting the navigation system.
Got to agree. What is the point of having to take the sd car OUT just to use the compass? I have configured the Fiat AIO from ameridan but havent installed it yet cuz of the issues people report with the compass thingy. Anyone have luck getting it to work properly?Well, yeah, but what's the point in having to do that?- weird oversite. Ameridan's tweaks have a speedometer that includes a compass but it doesn't properly track unfortunately. It would be better if the built in compass could be easily selected.
Just as an FYI - all the other recommended tweaks from Ameridan work wonderfully so don't hesitate to install. The compass (as part of that speedometer) installs as an application (you go to the applications on the home menu) and the speedometer itself works just fine. It's just the little rotating compass that sticks, along with altitude information. I'm assuming that is because it communicates with the gps when you start the car and then not afterwards. But, honestly - I use that app rarely. Being able to use the touchscreen at any time, plus some of the other tweaks - are really how the car should come to begin with. Just follow his instructions.Got to agree. What is the point of having to take the sd car OUT just to use the compass?

Should I maybe just not install the compass part then? But that is why I wanted to do some of those tweaks. I hate that the nav screen doesnt have a N indicator like EVERY nav I have ever seen...grrrr I don't like using the North option on the nav screen. I like the direction arrow always pointing up no matter what direction I am headed. I dunno. Maybe I need to get used to using it the other way.
