instead of showing direction you are going it reads CAL
The compass system is designed to operate for a certain number of miles or degrees of turn before needing a signal from the GPS satellites. When the compass display shows CAL, drive the vehicle for a short distance in an open area where it can receive a GPS signal. The compass system will automatically determine when the GPS signal is restored and provide a heading again.
CAL is probably short for calibrating.
Cal means you are in California. Get the heck out of there fast.
