No electronic compass option in GPS menu on K3 with O-GPS1

I was able to calibrate the gps unit but the electronic compass option doesn't show up in the menu. All that shows on my screen is astrotracker, calibration and gps time sync. Am I doing something wrong or is it a bad unit? I did just upgrade the firmware to eliminate that possibility.

My mistake. I was going by the instructions that came with the o-gps1 and what I saw on youtube videos. Neither of which were right. All I had to do was hit the info button twice then move over to the compass. That's quicker than doing it the way the instructions say it is suppose to work.
