Default compass calibration

I have a 2003 F250 I live in memphis tn so my zone is 8. Everytime i set the compass by the next day it is out again. I have tried using zone 7 and 9 with no luck. has anyone else had this problem and if so how and could it be fixed?

Default RE: compass calibration

how are you recallibrating it? all you have to is drive around in circles until the compassreads. i am assuming that you are talking about the compass in your overhead console.
