Just bought a brand new VW Passat 1.8 w/technology. Love the car but when I first got it the rearview mirror displayed the compass if I were in the directions of S,E,N or West. It doesn't display anymore and didn't know if I did anything when adjusting the settings on the navigation. I can't seems to make this appear anymore and was wondering if anyone else had this issue or to find a fix? :(

That's the whole point. I was trying to see what was the issue with this before I went to the dealership? Has anyone experienced this issue with the rear view mirror???

Really? Dealer + Warranty = FREE FIX

In the time it took you to reply, going to the dealer would have already
had the issue addressed. Apparently, it's not THAT important or you
would have done that outright.

However:
COMPASS MODULE, ACTIVATING
To activate compass module, rear window heater must be adapted as follows:
Activation must be performed with vehicle standing still.

Switch ignition on.
Wait 10 seconds
Switch on rear window defroster.
Wait 10 seconds
Switch rear window defroster off.
Switch off ignition


Switch ignition on, see if compass is activated.

DOES NOT MEAN CALIBRATED... You can look for that....

THAT is all there is, so of that does not work, Dealer = Warranty = FREE FIX...

I even searched yahoo for all of 7 seconds and found that...

Just saying, search engines are wonderful...

I appreciated you given me that info.

But I believe the issue may be this….

I do have the compass feature but it’s located on the instrument cluster of the car.

Now that works exactly as design.

I’m asking about the compass on the rear view mirror only!!

Keep in mind I just bought the car a couple weeks ago. I did ask the dealer about that (rear view mirror – compass) feature when I returned to them but they couldn’t find it in the car manual. Nor could I find it. So my question to you is do you believe it may be an option with the v6 version of the Passat?? Do you own a Passat? What year? What version? So that we can compare...
