Soundproofed Roof - Now Compass Does Not Work?

I soundproofed my roof with Rammat (foil and butyl) and then installed an OEM Toyota temperature/compass meter in the head console. The temperature works fine but the compass will not calibrate (I followed the instructions to a T). I then installed my buddies temp/compass unit and same problem.

I'm wondering if the Rammat may be blocking the compass signal.

Has anyone else who soundproofed their roof had this problem?

I'm sure it is.. Foil has foiled you.

So did this actually happen to you or are you just regaling me with bad puns?
