Volvo XC90: Starting and driving / Activating and deactivating the compass. Calibrating the compass

Activating and deactivating

An integrated compass1 in the upper right corner of the rearview mirror shows the direction the vehicle is traveling.

The compass is automatically activated when the vehicle is started.

To deactivate/activate the compass manually:

  • Use a paper clip or similar object to press the button on the bottom of the mirror.
    • If the compass is deactivated when the vehicle is switched off, it will not be activated the next time the vehicle is started. The compass will then need to be activated manually.

Calibrating the compass

(Option/accessory.)

The globe is divided into 15 magnetic zones. The compass1 should be calibrated if the vehicle is driven from one zone to another.

  1. Stop the vehicle in a large, open area away from steel constructions and high-voltage power lines.
  2. Start the engine and switch off all electrical equipment (climate system, wipers, etc.) and make sure all doors are closed.

    NOTE

    Calibration may fail or not even be initiated if electrical equipment is not turned off.

  3. Hold the button on the bottom of the rearview mirror pressed for about 3 seconds (using e.g. a paper clip). The number of the current magnetic zone is shown.

    Magnetic zones.

  4. 4. Press the button on the underside of the mirror repeatedly until the desired magnetic zone (1–15) appears (see the map of magnetic zones).
  5. Wait until the display again shows C, or press and hold the button on the underside of the rearview mirror for approx. 6 seconds until C is displayed.
  6. Drive slowly in a circle at a speed of no more than 10 km/h (6 mph) until a compass direction is shown in the display. This indicates that calibration is complete. Drive in a circle two more times to finetune the calibration.
  7. Vehicles with heated windshields*: If C is shown in the display when the windshield heating function is activated, perform step 6 above with the heating function on.
  8. Repeat the above procedure as needed.

1 Rearview mirror with compass is available as an option only on certain markets and models.
