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.

I recta compass a few years ago, it turns out they don't like being trodden on.
Useful for people who don't know their arse from their elbow...
It might be a compass come thermometer, although that migh be something completely different
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.
Well they do have a 1:10,000 scale and the sums aren't that difficult.
And north IS north.
