Has anybody looked into the compass function on a 2016 Premium A3?
I see under Instruments, Long Code Helper, Bit 10 there is a check box for the compass, if I enables that the navigation menu appears but no compass.

Any thoughts?

Chaz: Good morning. I'm not sure which MIB is in your car, but there are a bunch of "compass" adaptation channels address 5F control module.

I have the compass facility (on my mk7) which has MIBI unit and the adaptation channels are shown in the first part of the picture below. However, all these channels on my car are "not active" except for (42) which has a setting of "databus infotainment". The other mention of "compass" in my MQB platform vehicle (other than Byte 10 -not Bit 10, Bit 6) is in Byte 9 in the instrument module (address hex17) as per the second part of the picture below. Long shots, but might be worth consideration (I guess).
