    Default Mag Compass

    Has anyone found a mag compass that will actually work correctly when mounted on the forward windshield?
    Canít get mine to accurately show mag headings. Seems to ok when out of A/C and is inaccurate when placed inside.
    Degaussing needed?

    Just pretend it's "magnetic north" jumping around and forget about it. Others have tried with limited success better off looking at your phone if you really need one. I just use it to hang my glasses on.

    My iphone compass wonít even work in the cockpit. Iím not going to bother installing a compass from now on because they are not required if you have a magnetometer now.
