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 2-7 ੬ 06.7.5/Z50-D/V5.0 ੭
