I know this thread is really old, but I was wondering the same thing for my '11. I hate the compass on the Nav radio, I'd like it in the dash. Recently I had the instrument cluster replaced and when I got it back on the dash below the temp where two dashes (--). I took it back to the dealer because it didn't look right and couldn't remember at the time if this was a compass. Well, the problem was when they installed the cluster they didn't program it right for my vehicle (with the Nav system). Long story short they programmed it correctly and the dashes went away, but they also told me since I had the Nav radio that the dashboard compass is not compatible . I think I saw somewhere that the only option is to buy a rearview mirror with a compass (like I had in my Avalanche which was nice).
