Hello all!

(J12, n-Connecta)
Last night at 23:30, when I turned on the engine, I got a sun-like (?!?) symbol on drivers display (as shown above S). I went through all modes of the display and the symbol remained there... First tike I saw this one after having the car for almost 3 months...
Half an hour later, I made a stop and turned on the engine again.... Never saw the symbol since....
Any ideas what that my be? Can't find it in user's manual.....
If it is actually s sun symbol, why would the put in on drivers display? Why would it appear at 23:40 at night?! Does it have something to do with cars contrition and it looks to me as it is a sun symbol?

Welcome to this forum.

That's a new one!

The manual merely suggests:

12. Compass (where fitted)

This display indicates the heading direction of the vehicle.

Well, I just saw it once, never again... I don't know how to enable it or disabled it.. It wasn't on a full moon night... It looks like a sun symbol though, but having been displayed at 23:40 at night and not during the whole same day, was strange.... Nevertheless, I addressed the issue to the official NISSAN importer (not just the dealer) and i will get back with more info on the matter.

Thanks
(who knows, maybe some clouds, rain, or moon will pop up! :) )

Could it be something to do with the adaptive headlights available on some models?

Maybe that's not the correct name for it. The system where it turns off parts of the headlights so not to dazzle oncoming traffic

I believe the sun image is linked to the weather, since the dash was showing sun with a cloud and so was the media display.

So bearing in mind it was nearly midnight, the "sun" symbol suggests a clear sky - not that it's sunny.

Exactly like Illla and mine.
But it appeared only for one time and no option to turn in on or off. If someone has find something about how it’s activates I ll be grateful to inform us.

Maybe it's a bug.....why to show weather on compass.
