How do I calibrate the SSC200 to account for magnetic deviation?

The SSC200 can be calibrated to account for magnetic deviation in several ways; please refer to the SSC200 User's Manual for instructions. It is always best to calibrate the rate of turn gyro before you perform magnetic deviation calibration on the compass; instructions for this process can also be found in the user's manual.
