What is a sighting compass?
Identical to a baseplate compass, this type of compass has a sighting glass for reading the compass and viewing the target to be reached. This model has a protective casing to protect the compass during intensive activities.
Make sure the compass is flat when using it:
Your compass must be flat to detect magnetic north correctly. For example, by placing your compass in the palm of your hand. When using a map, place the compass on the map on a flat surface.
What if your compass loses its bearings?
Use your compass away from magnetic sources or it could lose its bearings: high-voltage power lines, mobile phones, keys, metal objects, etc. Even another compass might affect the direction!
Oil bath - yes or no?
Rest assured: all Geonaute compasses are filled with viscous oil to ensure optimal performance.
