Mine's read fine for well over 2 years now once I get moving and start the air flow. We're supposed to be down around -17 to -25 in the next few days, I'll let you know. On the other hand, if you reading 10 it's already too darn cold!

Nah, it's shown as low as -36C (-32.8F) on my dash.

It was -35C (-31F) this morning, and so far, it's been on par with what is reported on the radio station in terms of weather.

(Yes, it's freaking cold here. )

Here's the thread: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f98/really-strange-part-my-compass-434263/

This morning I started out from the house at -17 F. I got to the open farm fields and was at -23 F. By the time I got to work near Madison the radio was saying -16 F at the airport and I was at -17 F again. Coming home was the high for the day at -8. Sure seemed pretty close to me.

Another cold one (I'll drink to that! )

-24 at the house, -28 out by the farms, -21 at work and the radio said the airport was -16. The high coming home was -8.

Yup it's a biggie! Sure glad my Doctors is smaller. Now for the cold one.
