Origin of the Survival Button Compass

One should bear in mind that the button compass is only a guide, not to be used for detailed orienteering. The origin of the button compass is in escape and evasion and was often used by downed pilots over unfamiliar territory. It was made small and durable in an effort to make it easily concealable. However, this small size comes with a trade for accuracy, due to the smaller magnets contained within.

This compact survival compasses were and are used as an aid for locating a general direction, rather than a precise map reading instrument. That a button compass is off by an amount of degrees will often be the case because of the size of the compass. The size directly effects the respective magnetic strength of the compass by limiting the size and strength of the magnets.

This is precisely for this reason that button compasses are not often used in orienteering competitions or as a primary source of accurate direction. We highly recommend our line of larger Brunton Compasses if a highly accurate reading is required. However, for general direction finding, small size and durability, you simply can not beat the Best Glide Mini Tracker Button Compass.
