I don’t even think you need to ? The compass calibration is required, the rest figures it’s self out, even the compass calibration figures it’s self out on the water

it is difficult/impossible for the compass calibration to work if there are too many magnetic distortions. If it worked on the boat it can likely work in your house, but you must absolutely not move it in space in the house the entire time it is running which is impossible (for some people) Otherwise the changing magnetic field across space inside the house may block the calibration update for many minutes.
