It determines North and South correctly but E and W directions are 90 degrees out of sync with the nav map and the mirror. It's weird to see the nav small blue arrow pointing correctly but the current position arrow, in the window next to it, flipped in the mirrored direction.

Any tips?
Yes, your car is fine. The mirror compass tells you which way you are heading, the little arrow on the position window is meant to be like a compass needle -- it always points NORTH.

Take a second look at it and it will make sense.
