How do I calibrate my compass?
First, select compass mode by pressing the bottom left button. COMP will be displayed after you enter the compass mode. To Calibrate you will press and hold the top left button. Hold it in until you see "CAL" on the screen. At this point you will want to set or hold the compass as level as possible. You will then begin rotating the compass two full rotation (720 degrees).

My compass readings go away and (- - - -) is displayed on the screen. How do I get my direction readings back?
Simply hit the Top Right button to get your direction readings to return . This will bring your readings back up for about 10 seconds and will then go back to the (- - - -) being displayed.
