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 head- ing.
NOTE: Keep magnetic materials away from the top of the instrument panel, such as iPod’s, Mobile Phones, Lap- tops, and Radar Detectors. This is where the compass module is located, and it can cause interference with the compass sensor, and it may give false readings.
There is a variance map but I can't copy and paste it. It shows the variance across the US. What state do you live in?
