Hi,
I own a Mares Genius and have just updated the firmware.

Since the update, the compass no longer works.

it is stuck pointing South , which is ideal if I want to swim in that direction, but not so good if I want to turn in any other direction.

Is there anyway to fix this issue?

Regards

Hi. Did you try to recalibrate the compass? I noticed a note for the newest firmware stating that a recalibration of the compass is required after that fw upgrade. I just got my Genius, I haven't even had it in the water yet. I upgraded the fw, no stuck compass here. I recalibrated the compass. Only to discover that G. wanted me to perform the recalibration again and again and again. So far I've done it six times, it still wants me to recalibrate. Truth to be told, every time I perform this procedure the time it takes to complete it to 100% takes shorter and shorter time. I hope that's an indication that something good is happening.

Hi
Thank you for your reply.
I spoke to Robin Hood watersports, who I brought if from, and the guy there contacted Mares, and it has now been sorted. It did re calibration. Thanks to everyone who helped.
