Chrysler 200: Compass Variance - Compass Display - Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) — If Equipped - Understanding your instrument panel - Chrysler 200 Owners ManualChrysler 200: Compass Variance

Compass Variance is the difference between Magnetic North and Geographic North. To compensate for the differences, the variance should be set for the zone where the vehicle is driven, per the zone map. Once properly set, the compass will automatically compensate for the differences and provide the most accurate compass heading.

NOTE:
Magnetic and battery powered devices, (such as cell phones, iPod’s, radar detectors, PDA’s and laptops) should be kept away from the top of the instrument panel. This is where the compass module is located and such devices may interfere and cause false compass readings.
