    Rangeman 9400 Compass

    Hello All, New to the Forum.

    I recently bought a Rangeman 9400. In regards to the Compass, in the "eye" the 3-line marker points to the north(?). If so, mine seems to be off by about 180 degrees.

    I entered the coordinates (Long. and Lat. rounded up or down to the tenth.) provided by Google. I did the two-point calibration (I dont' think that has anything to do with the "true" north being displayed correctly).

    33degrees41'27.6"N
    33.69099

    do I set this on the watch as

    N
    .6
    33

    Thanks for any suggestions or direction to another post regarding this.

    You have to enter N or S and E or W.

    I am at approximately 25.0 N and 75.3 W

    So I enter Latitude N 25.0 which looks like N.0 25' and Longitude W 77.3 which looks like W.3 77'

    I'm not sure the longitude and latitude setting is related to your compass issue. As far as I know, these values are only needed for the sunrise/sunset function.

    How is the magnetic declination set on your Rangeman? For my location in So Cal, I have mine set to E 14 (14 deg East), which means magnetic north is 14 degrees east of true north.

    Coordinates is irrelevant as it’s sensor driven. Check declination setting.

    Maybe also check surroundings to see if you are indeed where you think you are, Or it’s just another matrix or Truman show.

    I am in So Cal... let me look into the magnetic declination (I didn't know what that was) and I will set it the same. or will confirm what it should be. I am in Orange County Costa Mesa.
