Garmin Oregon 750t Compass Calibration fail


Recommended Posts

I have two Garmin Oregon 750T units on which I cannot seem to calibrate the compass.  When I bought the first unit, I frequently failed on the 3rd step (flip end over end) but after a couple-three tries I was usually able to get the last step to work.  However, for the last 6 months or so I cannot ever get the 3rd step to succeed.  I have tried, I have had others try, no luck.  I am currently running version 5.90 on at least one unit and probably both.  Also, every time I turn on the units, I have to calibrate otherwise the needle will point either 90 or 180 degrees from the actual tract.  Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.

Each step must be fluid, accurate and done fast.  It should look just like the animation.  If you spin it too slowly, it will fail.

Please provide a more detailed explanation here. The compass will never be off by those values, and certainly not after each power cycle. 

 

Please provide detailed information for what you are seeing and how you get there. Screen captures will help immensely.
