Technical information

3 STEPS TO FOLLOW A DIRECTION FROM "A" TO "B" OR TAKE A BEARING WITH A COMPASS

1 - Lay the compass down on the map. Line up the edge of the compass from point A to point B
2 - Turn the rotating bezel until the lines on the baseplate line up with the longitudinal lines
3 - With the compass held nice and flat in the hand and with the arrow pointing in the direction you're walking: Turn around until the magnetic needle of the compass is lined up with the north orienting arrow!
Let's go, you can move forwards by following the direction of travel arrow!

Graduated 1:25,000 and 1:50,000 scales

Your compass has 3 graduations:

- A 1:25,000 scale
- A 1:50,000 scale
It will enable you to make measurements on your map and thus work on reading scales.

A more precise and intuitive wide needle

When designing this compass, we chose a wide needle to enable a more accurate and intuitive visual alignment between the needle and the grid lines on the map.

Lanyard to carry it around the neck.

For greater security and peace of mind, the neck strap comes with an opening system if snatched.

Correction of the magnetic declination

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.
