  • 78. Zone variation change procedure The difference between magnetic north and geographical north is known as variance. In some areas, this difference can sometimes be great enough to cause false compass readings. Follow these instructions to set the variance for your particular location if this happens: 1. Push the compass switch for more than 3 seconds. The current zone number will ap- pear in the display. 2. Find your current location and variance one number on the zone map. 3. Push the compass switch until the new zone number appears in the display. After you stop pushing the switch in, the display will show a compass direction within a few seconds. Inaccurate compass direction: 1. With the display turned on, push the com- pass switch for 3 seconds, until the zone selection comes up (a number will be dis- played in the mirror compass window). 2. Toggle until correct zone is found and release switch. 3. It returns to the normal compass mode within 10 seconds of no switch activity.SIC0611D Instruments and controls 2-7੬ 05.8.26/Z50-D/V5.0 ੭
