Quick question, since day one my RC pro will not allow me to do the compass calibration down in main settings. Wondering if anyone has a fix or way of getting it to work. I'm seeing a discrepancy on my screen to actual. Anyway, I hit the button to calibrate (in settings) and just says "done" with no movements as the screen reference is showing multiple moves in order to calibrate. Anyone else come across this or have a fix? Maybe a future update if not? I've reached out to DJI but no responses worthy. Yes, have done a complete restore of the device, powered off, reset and went through the manual with no luck. TIA

If the drone is flying properly, there should be no need to recalibrate the drone's compass.
If you are seeing a difference in the controller display, the compass that needs calibrating is the compass in the controller.

Thanks for the reply. But in my original message I mentioned I am currently seeing a discrepancy on the controller. Calibrating the mavic 3 has been done successfully multiple times if there’s a location change. Just having issues with the RC pro

You don't need to recalibrate the drone  unless you add or remove things from the drone.
Changing location makes no difference to compass calibration.

You said that you noticed a discrepancy on the controller.
That suggests that you need to recalibrate the compass that's in your RC-Pro so that its directional information is displaying correctly.

I’m all set thanks. I’ll research information that is in regards to a fix.

Page 19 of the RC-Pro manual is what you are looking for.

Thank you. But again, as I’ve originally stated. I have read thru the manual and have tried all the standard resets/prompts possible. If you don’t have the RC Pro, please, no disrespect but I am all set. I don’t need any help on reading the manual (as I have), been in this game for 10+ years, and doing full restores on the devices and DJI assistance. Was just looking for someone who’s HAD it happen and may have known a fix. I’ve done everything according to a SOP’s regarding troubleshooting. Thank you

It's too late for me to check tonight. What exactly is the discrepancy so I'll know what to look for tomorrow?

It’s the RC itself. Shows you how to calibrate it using the procedure on the screen. When I hit “calibrate” it jumps to “done”. When I go fly. I point west with the RC it’s more like northwest or southwest. Point is. The RC software won’t let me calibrate. Wondering (which was my first question) has anyone found a fix or I’m feeling this may be a firmware deal?

What exactly is pointing wrong?

As I’ve stated above. It’s not the pointing. It’s the software when trying to calibrate the compass on the RC pro. There is no dance to calibrate, only once you hit start it says “done”. Yet it didn’t do anything.  No worries I’ll figure this out another way.

You said in the OP that you had a discrepancy on your screen to actual. If everything is pointing correctly, your RC Pro compass does NOT need calibrating!!!  That means, you are seeing the calibration completed.

I had also mentioned a few posts back that at times I’ll be facing the RC northwest and it will show anything but northwest. No worries. I’m all set. Just wondering if anyone else had this pop up

It still sounds like the issue is related to the compass in the RC-Pro being deflected and not reading correctly.

How about a screenshot or two and a more detailed explanation.

I just tried mine with the same results. The ONLY thing the RC Pro compass affects is the blue/green arrow on the controller location blue dot in the attitude indicator display. It has ZERO effect on flying.

Thank you for taking the time to verify. I understand this does not effect flying but ultimately the direction the RC pro is facing in relation to the drone. Much appreciated for the time
