Does anyone know how to 'unlock' (mine is stuck on north, and will not move) the compass in the touch screen without going to the dealer and paying them $150.00+ to do so??

I already tried the 'full system reset/default' thing, no bueno. [:(]

Try unplugging the GPS module then power off and plug it back in.

I would do that first (unplug compass), if that doesn't do it then unhook the battery for 5 minutes and see if it's working after hooking battery up again. You may need to drive the car a little bit to calibrate the compass. I know for NAV they recommend something like 5 turns left 5 turns right with a vehicle speed over 25mph. I doubt that is necessary for just compass but you should know quick if that worked or not.
