Hi there,

Expert:  Pete replied 11 months ago.

In Change Preferences - Status Bar Preferences, uncheck the Max Speed option.

The Horizontal setting seems to allow the most screen space. When you uncheck Max Speed, you lose the speed limit but you will still be warned when going over the speed limit. This will allow the compass to be displayed again.
