Toyota Venza: Compass

The compass on the inside rear view mirror indicates the direction in which the vehicle is heading.

 - Operation

To turn the compass on or off, push and hold “AUTO” for longer than 3 seconds.

 - Displays and directions

Calibrating the compass

The direction display deviates from the true direction determined by the earth’s magnetic field. The amount of deviation varies according to the geographic position of the vehicle.

If you cross over a map boundary shown in illustration, the compass will deviate.

To obtain higher precision or perfect calibration, refer to the following.

 - Deviation calibration

Stop the vehicle where it is safe
to drive in a circle.

Push and hold “AUTO” until a number (1 to 15) appears on the compass display.

Press “AUTO”, and referring to the
map above, select the number of the zone where you are.

Wait a few seconds until the compass
direction is displayed.

The calibration is complete.

 - Circling calibration

If “C” appears on the display, drive the vehicle at 5 mph (8 km/ h) or less in a circle until a direction is displayed.

If there is not enough space to drive in a circle, drive around the block until the direction is displayed.

 - Conditions unfavorable to correct operation

The compass may not show the correct direction in the following conditions:

• The vehicle is stopped immediately after turning.

• The vehicle is on an inclined surface.

• The vehicle is in a place where the earth’s magnetic field is subject to interference by artificial magnetic fields (underground car park/parking lot, under a steel tower, between buildings, roof car park/parking lot, near an intersection, near a large vehicle, etc.).

• The vehicle has become magnetized.

(There is a magnet or metal object near the inside rear view mirror.) • The battery has been disconnected.


 - While driving

Do not adjust the display.

Be sure to adjust the display only when the vehicle is stopped.

 - When doing the circling calibration

Be sure to secure a wide space, and watch out for people and vehicles in the neighborhood. Do not violate any local traffic rules while performing circling calibration.

 - To avoid the compass malfunctions

Do not place magnets or any metal objects near the inside rear view mirror.

Doing this may cause a malfunction of the compass sensor.

- To ensure normal operation of the compass

• Do not perform circling calibration of the compass in a place where the earth’s magnetic field is subject to interference by artificial magnetic fields.

• During calibration, do not operate electric systems (moon roof, power windows, etc.) as they may interfere with the calibration.
