    Technical Information
      • There are a number of advantages to thumb carrying as soon as you start running while reading your map and compass. It is easy to read the map and compass simultaneously, since the compass is always in contact with the map. In addition, you can avoid the risk of getting snagged on a branch you face with a traditional cord and, if you fall, carrying a thumb compass means you can keep both hands free!
      • A stable needle will allow you to read your compass while running and thus stay on course! This stability is due to the specific construction of the 'pivoting' needle. In addition, a transparent stability disc reduces the unwanted vibrations of the needle, thus making it easy to read while running. Lastly, the powerful magnet you can see under the needle enables a rapid reaction time.
      • Learn to run while reading the map. Is the hand you naturally use to hold the map that in which you must hold the compass? Our advice? In general, right-handers prefer a LEFT-thumb compass and left-handers prefer a RIGHT-thumb compass; they can thus keep their stronger hand free to move branches aside, keep their balance or carry an electronic pointer to validate the control points. RIGHT-thumb compass: 8552897
      • The arrow at the top of the compass can help you find your position more quickly and easily on the map. The arrow is also graduated (3 cm), so you can quickly gauge the distances you will need to travel. "So, 2cm on the map, at a scale of 1:15 000, means 30,000cm, so 300m! You need to be good at doing sums in your head!"
      • Rest assured: all Geonaute compasses are filled with viscous oil to ensure optimal performance.
      • This compass is balanced for use in the northern hemisphere. Near the equator, or in the southern hemisphere, our compass will continue to indicate north, but its stability will be affected.
      • Keep your compass in a place that is neither hot nor cold. Avoid excessively high or low temperatures and changes in pressure: high altitudes in the mountains or transport in the hold of an aeroplane.
    Storage advice
    Your compass comes with a little, soft pouch to protect it from any impacts or scratches during transport.
