This American-made compass has an extended base plate with more map grid lines, making it great for triangulating your location on a map.

When all of the battery powered tech you have fails, this little guy won't. Some basic deadhead navigating never hurt anyone and this compass is the perfect tool for the job. Highly recommended.
