Used by professional guides, orienteering enthusiasts, and adventure racers, the Brunton TruArc 10 Compass delivers a host of functional navigational features for plotting bearings on the move. The double-gauge plastic baseplate offers bomber reliability for years of reliable use. Working everywhere in the world, the TruArc Global Needle won't drag or stick at equatorial locations or in the southern hemisphere. This needle also works well on the move, allowing you to take readings without the compass being completely level with the ground.
Adjustable declination allows you to set it and forget it before navigating through locations where a declination offset is needed. The Ever-North Magnet resists magnetic interference with metal objects, phones, radios, and avalanche transceivers, also retaining polarity over time. Helping you locate your bearing, the magnified readout features 1-degree graduations for a highly accurate readout. Other handy features include a UTM Roamer Grid, reversible scale (English or metric units), and GPS confidence circles for plotting coordinates from a GPS to a map.

Great for map use
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I bought the Brunton TruArc 10 to replace a basic compass I had carried for years. My first impression out of the box was that it was much bigger than I had expected. I was a little concerned about that size since I usually carry it in my pocket. It did take a little getting used to, but now I don't notice it at all in there. On the flip side, this extra size makes using this compass with a map an amazing experience. With the built in UTM scales and the magnified heading readout, finding a bearing and staying on it are a breeze. The declination adjustment is easy to use and there is no way that it will get moved on it own. If you are carrying a map and want your compass to do more than just point you north, this is a great option.
