Quick Overview

Did you know a standard compass purchased in Australia will not work in the northern hemisphere and vice versa? If you are travelling you need a special global compass like this one.

 

SUUNTO M3G GLOBAL COMPASS

Details

A premium quality precision compass for convenient direction taking globally even in demanding conditions.


The M series Suunto models represent durable, reliable, high quality navigational aids, which perform flawlessly in even the most demanding of conditions. They feature a large liquid filled capsule and adjustable declination correction scale. Another convenient feature is the serrated bezel ring, which is easy to turn even in cold conditions while wearing gloves. Due to their easy-to-read luminous markings and magnifying lenses, the compasses of the M-Series are also ideally suited to navigating in conditions of poor visibility. The M-3G model comes with the Global Balancing System.*

    * Compass needles are usually magnetised specifically for a specific region of the world. The world has been split into 5 zones for this purpose. The whole of Australia and New Zealand falls within one zone. Suunto compasses using the Global Balancing System will work in the northern hemisphere as well as the south. This is accomplished by an ingenious system of gimbals that the compass needle is balanced on. Please be aware that it is our experience that a global compass does not offer the needle speed and smoothness that a specifically balanced one does. For the best possible result get a specific balanced one such as the Suunto A30 or M3. However we have used global compasses for literally many thousands of kilometres of hiking both in the northern and southern hemisphere with no problems.
