Compass Calibration???

Anyone else have problem calibrating theirs??? I've been driving in circles for 2 days now in my cul-de-sac and I think I'm starting to creep out my neighbors. What am I doing wrong???

I thought I was doing it wrong. I'm pretty sure I was going around 5, maybe a hair more when I did it. I'll try it again at an extremely slow speed.

So my compass randomly showed up this morning, but it's stuck on S.

No I haven't. Good idea. I'll have to read over it again.
