TECHNICAL INFORMATIONS

Graduations

Your compass has 3 graduations:
- A 5 cm graduated ruler
- A 1:25,000 scale
- A 1:50,000 scale
Lets you make measurements on your map and work on reading scales.

Declination scale

You will find a declination scale within the capsule.
Magnetic declination is the difference in angle between magnetic north and geographical north on your map.
You can find the value of this declination in your country online.

Why use a wide needle?

We designed this compass with a wide needle for more accurate and intuitive visual alignment between the needle and the grid lines on the map.

Safe carrying:

For greater security and peace of mind, the neck strap opens if snagged.

Oil bath—yes or no?

Rest assured, all Geonaute compasses are filled with viscous oil to ensure optimal performance.

Je suis débutante en randonnée et cette boussole est parfaite!
Pas convaincu...
Jerome (France) Used for Plus d'un an
Après une saison avec ces boussoles je me suis aperçu de plusieurs choses :
1/ pour des novices elles ne sont pas intuitive, le cercle noir cache les chiffres de la couronne seul une petite fenêtre permet de voir. Et qui n’est pas suffisant .
2/ après un an les chiffres de la couronne sont effacés donc inutilisable
3/ le design a été réalisé pour innover et sortir du lot mais pas convaincu du projet
4/ je la classe sur un bas de gamme
5/ un poil cher du coup pour un bas de gamme qui de plus a couté un bureau d’étude pour faire évoluer une boussole moins pratique qu’une vrai boussole ????
6 / même le code couleur de l’aiguille rouge n’y est plus on a un gros carré orange et pour calculé l’azimut la faire correspondre avec le gros rectangle noir ... a expliqué à des novices pas facile surtout si on a plusieurs jeu de boussole ...
7/ quelques couronne grippe , et pas facile à faire tourner un peut trop lisse ...
bref juste pour amateur qui cherche le nord et encore une était démagnétisé... !!!
Retex d’une école de survie locale qui a passé plus de 100 stagiaires dessus ...
Response of the brand

Bonjour Jérôme,

Merci pour votre avis bien complet !


Sachez que nous avons écouté vos remarques et nous avons apporté des modifications au produit :

1/ Les graduations sont à présent blanches pour une meilleure lisibilité des chiffres

2/ La "Maison du Nord" est maintenant orange, pour facilité la compréhension. Elle correspond à l'aiguille magnétique du nord orange elle aussi.


Je vous contacte par message privé pour vous proposer de vous envoyer quelques une de ces boussoles nouvelle version.


En espérant que le produit saura satisfaire vos besoins futurs !

à bientôt en forêt !


Louise, passionnée de Course d'Orientation et Raid Aventure Multisport
