The Compass PageUsing the Compass Page
The Compass Page is your guide to accurate and efficient navigation.
It uses traditional navigation displays to provide navigation information.
When navigation is in progress, the Compass Page provides naviga-
tion data and directions. It uses a graphic compass display, a bearing
pointer and digital data fields to display information such as current
speed, distance to the next point on the route, estimated arrival time, etc.
You can choose from three or four data fields and select the type of data
displayed in each from a list of options.
When moving, the rotating graphic compass indicates the direction
you are heading. The Bearing Pointer indicates the direction (bearing) to
your destination relative to your current heading direction. The compass
dial and Bearing Pointer work independently to show your direction of
movement and the direction to your destination. You can choose between
a Bearing Pointer or a Course Pointer for guidance.
The compass does not function as a magnetic compass when you are
stationary. However when you move, the dial rotates to keep you oriented
in relation to North. This is especially helpful when using a paper map in
conjunction with your unit for navigation.

Compass Page Options Menu
To use the Compass Page Options:
Press the MENU key to display the Options Menu.
2. The ﬁrst option is “Stop Navigation” which can be highlighted and activated by pressing
ENTER to stop navigating.
3. The second option is “Course Pointer” or “Bearing Pointer.”
The Bearing Pointer and Compass Ring work independently of the
direction of your movement and the direction to your destination. The
Bearing Pointer always points directly to the destination, no matter what
your current location might be.
For example: if the arrow is pointing straight up, you are going
directly to your destination. If it points any direction other than up, turn
towards that direction until the arrow is pointing up and then continue
in that direction. If you are using the “Course Pointer” option instead
and you drift away from the line of travel to your destination, the Course
Deviation Indicator (CDI) provides graphic indication of drift (right or
left) and displays the distance off course.

option and press ENTER to display the Show “3 Data Fields”
or “4 Data Fields” options. Highlight your selection and press

ENTER, a list of data options will
appear. Refer to page 11 for details on changing data ﬁelds.
