I always feel like the map has moved.


That is the most resolution you are going to be able to buy in this style compass. You just adjust the angle to make things work for you. Both compasses have it, and both work very well. Suunto The Suunto has an adjustment screw on the back, and a supplied tool on the lanyard. To read it you almost bruntob to tilt the compass backward a little to see in there. An interesting side note is that military style lensatic compasses can not even use this method because of the lack of the protractor.

The back bearing scale seems to be hidden kind of far up in the housing. Because of this, they have left meridian lines out of the capsule. Their strengths and weaknesses are my opinion and based on how I use things. The north arrow has illumination as well as the doghouse. In fact, due bruntln the silk screening of the north arrow, orienteering arrow and the black rubber baseplate cover, sighted bearing is even moderately low light conditions are almost impossible. Take a few moments to jump in and learn some compass navigations tips and tricks and check out two prominent baseplate style compasses from Brunton and Suunto!

I am not extremely happy about that, but at least it is a method that works. That is a lot of talking for just a little bit of work. Brunto, because the needle is a line, and we have the doghouse lines, we just need to make everything parallel.

Now, the worst case parallax problem, 90 degrees. Place a “point” at a starting position and an “X” at a destination. Now, find the map bearing from one position to another.

The problem with this is that if the paint rubs off just because of use, they are gone for good. But first, it is important to note that the Brunton actually has two covers. The second cover gives you access to the clear baseplate, meridian lines and scales for working with a map. Both the bearing and back bearing can be read at the same time, in the same location, just by looking at the different scales. The smaller distance lessens the parallax.


For many reasons, beyond the intentions of this article, I am a huge advocate of the baseplate style compass.

At the 90 degree setting, it seems to just click to let you know you have reached that setting, yet it moves freely all the way manjal to the degree manua. Pivot your body until reflection of the blue orienting circle outlines circled “N” We are about to find out: Try setting your compass on a table or counter top. The first, smaller one allows you to do non-sighted and sighted bearings.

It was a nice thought. The Suunto rocks in this regard.

At first, I thought it was not as big of an issue as I was making it because the orienteering circle has a line, which is all the way across the capsule, and inside. The topo-map is now aligned with true north. The bottom line is that I came up with a way to make this work. There are two extremely simple ways for dealing with it, but is beyond the intention of this article.
