Compass Issue

I've got a 2015 Grand Cherokee Limited 4X4. Has anyone ever had an issue with the compass being blatantly wrong? I've had one or two instances where it shows my vehicle heading in a completely different compass direction from my actual direction of travel.

Re: Compass Issue

We don't have any TSB's pertaining to those symptoms. Have you ever brought this to the attention of your local dealership? How consistently is it occurring? - Jack, Jeep Social Care Specialist

Re: Compass Issue

I have not brought it in yet. It's very sporadic and intermittent. It did it yesterday and has done it two other times before.

Re: Compass Issue

Strange that it's so sporadic. Hopefully you'll get some more feedback from the community, but keep us posted if you decide to have it looked at!

Re: Compass Issue

Have you tried calibrating the compass? There is a calibration setting in your radio.

Check page 322 of owners manual.
