Navigational Mobile Apps and GPS units are all very well, they are useful navigational tools, but you still need to take a proper map and a good compass into the hills with you and know how to use both.

It might be a compass come thermometer, although that migh be something completely different

In reply to UKC Articles: Not a very well conceived article given that you recommend the BMC maps (1:40,000 scale) that are not even compatible with the compasses you are trying to promote!

In reply to The Ex-Engineer:

How on earth can any compass be incompatible with any specific map? I suppose if there were no grid then it would make life difficult, but the BMC maps have these.

In reply to The Ex-Engineer:
Well they do have a 1:10,000 scale and the sums aren't that difficult.
And north IS north.

A decent 1:40,000 map may well be better than this though....http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-19659736
