Trying to find the same thing out. Canadian edition as well, and it mentions "digital compass".
This seems like false advertising. This is a feature of Carplay (Apple) and not my car. I see this in Carplay when I use maps, but that is not part of the car. This is like saying the Atlas has an LTE radio, because my phone does.I also have a Comfortline and I asked my dealer.
The digital compass is only displayed within your navigation app while using the CarPlay / Android features.
So, yes, there is a digital compass in the Comfortline but it won't show in the main hud.
It feels cheapy from VW since it's only a software issue.
