Honda CR-V: Compass Operation

Next to the outside temperature

Next to the outside temperature indicator of the information display, a compass indicates which direction your vehicle is pointed. It indicates eight directions.

N: North
S: South
E: East
W: West
NE: Northeast
NW: Northwest
SE: Southeast
SW: Southwest

For example, when your vehicle is traveling in the north-east direction, the compass shows ‘‘NE’’ in the display.

Compass operation can be affected by driving near power lines or stations, across bridges, through tunnels, over railroad crossings, past large vehicles, or driving near large objects that can cause a magnetic disturbance. It can also be affected by accessories such as antennas and roof racks that are mounted by magnets.
