Do you have the base model or Touring? The touring model can show the compass either on the NAV screen or the driver info screen, you just have to set things to what wish to see. I'd bet it's on the base model as well.
Check out the owners manual, lots in there you'd probably not find if you didn't peruse through it. Here is a link to all of the manuals. If you've not been on the page before, you may have to enter the year and model to see the right manual. And you could start in the index under compass.
