Compass interference

Hi all civic owners. I have a digital compass that I got from halfords som time ago for my last car. I now tried transferring this to my beloved civic and there is a lot of interference stopping the compass working, it just indicates south all the time. Does anyone have a solution to mask the interference. I have tried moving it about

I didn't get what those two are talking about either, but I'll have a pint of whatever they're on.

Ah, understand your post now.

Lack of pigeon sense?

I know you used to see them stuck on all sorts dashes 10 years ago before sat navs started to become common.



Maybe that's just how he rolls.

I used to have a compass many years ago but as you say, too much interference these days.

Use a SatNav instead, they have this feature built in.
