- Precise with graduated rotating capsule which determines and memorises the direction.
- Transparent for seeing maps detail behind.
- Graduated baseplate (inch, 1/25 000, etc.) for measuring distances on the map.
This model has declination correction to adjust the difference between magnetic and geographic north for better precision.
Your compass must be flat to detect the magnetic north correctly. Place your compass in the palm of your hand. When using a map, place the compass on the map on a flat surface.
Use your compass at sufficient distance from any magnetic sources which will affect its capacity to detect the north: high-voltage power lines, mobile phones, keys, metal objects, and even another compass can affect the direction
