calibrate a compass rear view mirror

Just installed an '06/'07 rear view compass mirror--the one that has the points displayed in a star-like fashion--on an '03 Pilot. With a bit of sleuthing determined the pinout to power it up. However, there are no instructions as to calibrating it. It has a button on the back that seems to be for this purpose, but I'll be darned if I can figure out how to

1. Set the correct zone
2. Get it to run it's auto calibrate.

If anyone has manual pages from an 06 or 07 Pilot that cover this, or can just describe the procedure in text, I'd be grateful.

Thx!:

Thanks for the quick response! I checked it out, but it's for a different mirror. The mirror I have has does not have auto-dim and the compass is in the corner of the mirror glass in a start-like pattern. I believe the mirror became an option in the 06 model year.

Hope this clarifies what I'm after.
