Hello all.
My 2019 Japanese import ZE1 e+G has been a revelation since it arrived a couple of months ago, but I'm still trying to get my head around few features.
One thing that's bugging me is that the compass/direction finder in the main dash is waaaaaay off.
I wondered whether it had something to do with the car moving from the northern hemisphere to down south here in Melbourne, Australia, but I suspect is that was the case it would be off by 180 degrees. However it's weirder than that - when I'm driving north it says I'm going south-east!
Does anyone know if it's possible to re-calibrate the compass?
Most of the time it's not important because I'm driving on familiar city/suburban streets, but when I go bush it would be very helpful to know which direction I'm facing.
