Technical Information

The most complete compass!

Its features allow you to:
- Orient the map
- Follow a precise direction
- Determine its position via three bearings for triangulation
- Find an object in the field from a known azimuth

360-degree and 6,400 mil graduations.

The rotating capsule is made up of a double graduation ring: 360 degrees for inner ring and 6,400 mils for outer ring.
Graduation in mils, which is more precise, was commonly used for military exercises in the past.

Mirror sight for even more precision

The mirror sighting system allows you to take precise bearings in the field.
The small lock at the cover opening allow you to tilt the mirror to an ideal position (45°) to take accurate sightings.
To find out how to take a sighting, watch the explanatory video.

3 graduated scales: 1:50000, 1:25000 and 1:10000

The EXPLORER 900 compass has 3 graduations:
A 7-cm graduated ruler
A 1:50,000 scale
A 1:25,000 scale
A 1:10,000 scale
A 2.5-inch graduated ruler
It will enable you to make measurements on your map and thus work on reading scales.

Declination scale

You will find a declination scale within the capsule.
The magnetic declination is the difference in angle between magnetic north and the geographical north on your map.
Find the value of this declination in your country on the internet.

A more precise and intuitive wide needle

When designing this compass, we chose a wide needle to enable a more accurate visual alignment between the needle and the grid lines on the map. Indeed, your needle never sights one graduation, it should just be perfectly aligned with the grid lines on the map.

Universal balancing

The needle of this compass is universal. It can be used anywhere around the globe!

Oil bath - yes or no?

Rest assured: all Geonaute compasses are filled with viscous oil to ensure optimal performance.
