Take a walk in the woods with peace of mind! Our Lensatic Compass can plot your path quickly and easily. Liquid filled to reduce swing and wobble, this is the perfect beginner to intermediate level compass.
How to take a fix:
Using the compass wire plot-line, sight on a prominent feature shown on a map. Read the magnetic bearing from the front of the compass dial. Example: if you are sighting on a mountain and the bearing to the mountain is 40 degrees, place the compass fully open on the map so that the mountain is on the wire plot-line and North and South is parallel to magnetic North on the map. Your current location is now on the plot line.
