    If you ever head to Tn. Just let me know , I'm about to install a premium cluster and like cptwing I'm gonna try and get compass & temp in the cluster & radio .
    My truck was an RA1 Original as well , and as you know I've already struggled with the compass heading

    Poor RicksRam! He's a smart guy with the tool he can figure it out ha ha !

    LOL I had to buy the tool I'm out here all by myself! Fortunately my truck came with the RA2 so the temp and compass heading in the EVIC was one I didn't have to try to figure out.

    I found the EVIC "return to default" mode but it didn't help. The top left or right numeric displays has 8 modes to scroll through but outside temperature or compass setting isn't one of them :-(

    Weird one?
    Ok so you had outside temp and compass on both evic and radio before the swap? I know the RA1 and RA2 do not display outside temp. But all was working as it should prior to the swap?

    Ok did you do anything with the side mirrors or overhead console?

    Before the swap Temp was on the EVIC and compass was on the 5.0 radio.

    Now I have neither :-( Really the Temperature is the one I'd like to get back on either on the EVIC or the radio 8.4 now ;-) No messing with the mirrors or the overhead console. Also somewhere along the line my horn quit working :p

    I'm hoping it's just a setting somewhere I don't know about. But I do love the leather seats :favorites13:

    I did the swap. Found it easier to remove the top steering wheel cowl first. gives much needed room and avoid touching the cluster on anything. No towel needed.

    Got my premium cluster swap done. Had Dominic at TVandNav2go.com do the correction to the hours and miles. $175 including 2 day shipping back to me. LOVE it way more than the original cluster! Def a mod worth doing!
