How to calibrate Tinypilot?

My tiny pilot works, but needs calibration. Ive read the wiki on calibration on
1. should I press something before I move the gyro around the 6 sides of a box?
2. Why doesn't my calibration get a calibration age?
3. for calibration of the compass, should I press something before start steering the boat in circles on calm water?
1) No need. The 6 sides is only for accelerometer calibration and usually (but not always) these sensors are good enough from the factory without it.
2) The age shows when calibration was last updated
3) No, only ensure the calibration is not locked.
For me, I could not get a calibration in the house, but in the boat, it always works after one circle. You cannot imitate the motion of a real boat, apparently. Or the magnetic field inside a house is messed up because of the domestic wiring.
it's possible to calibrate in a house (or at least on by boat without turning the boat) if you carefully and slowly rotate the sensors without moving them, but the magnetic field can be greatly affected by buildings.
