  • Ergonomic rubber shoe on bottom of compass grips map surface and is comfortable to hold
  • Declination adjustment scale allows you to account for the difference between magnetic and true north; scale on base is adjustable to your location
  • Three different clinometers for measuring slope angles -- useful for determining snow slope stability and for surveying
  • Two of the clinometer scales offer 5-degree increments, 1 offers 1-degree increments
  • Includes USGS map scale 1:24,000, ft, Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) and mile scales for position accuracy
