USE/PRECAUTIONS FOR USE
Description of normal operating conditions: The C400 compass is designed to determine an angular direction (also called BEARING or AZIMUTH) in relation to magnetic north.
Restrictions on use/precautions for use
Compasses must always be used HORIZONTALLY. It is very important to avoid friction against the dials pivot point by holding the instrument with a maximum of 5 from a horizontal position. This compass detects the Earths magnetic field. It is very important to keep this instrument away from any sources of electromagnetic disturbance (high voltage, emission of waves, e.g. telephone, cell phone, radio, or television; and objects containing ferrous metals). This compass detects MAGNETIC North, which is not in exactly the same place as geographic north. The difference (the declination) depends on the users position on the globe. It is given in the following table.

Declination values for some large cities of the world. For your city, enter the
average of the values of 2 nearby cities. If the declination is West (W), subtract the indicated value from the value you have just read. If the declination is East (E), add the variation to the value you have just read. The position of magnetic north also changes with time, but these variations are negligible over a time span of a few years.
the needle may congeal or liquefy depending on the ambient temperature. In order to preserve its performance capabilities, protect the compass from extreme temperatures (e.g. by keeping it under a garment). The compass requires a few seconds to stabilize. Do not take the reading into account until the needle has stabilized completely. To use this compass, you need to have a map. Opt for a map with a scale available on the compass. For optimal use, also bring along a wooden pencil and an eraser.
A compass is a precision instrument. Do not drop it The operation of the compass varies with the temperature. The oil that slows
USING THE COMPASS
3 operating modes are available for different orienteering needs : 1 - How do you take a bearing ? You know where you are and you have located your destination on the map (the angular direction in relation to the north)? 2 - How do you find your way ? You know where you are and you have taken the bearing (angular direction) to follow, 3 - How do you determine your position on the map ? You do not know where you are
EXPLANATION OF EACH OPERATING MODE
Determining an angular direction (Bearing) on a map 1
You are at point A and you want to go to point B. Which bearing should you follow?
Position yourself on a flat, level spot. Mark the departure point (A) and the arrival point (B) on the map and draw a straight line between the two points (AB).
Orient the compass towards the north by aligning the yellow line, north (0) of the mobile magnetic disc (inner scale) with the direction-of-travel arrow.
Place the compass on the map. Turn the map and orient the north of the map towards the magnetic north indicated by the compass.
Keeping the map towards the north, turn the compass, lining up the direction-of-travel arrow (parallel to the long edges) with direction AB to be measured.
Read the bearing (angle formed by the direction to be measured and the magnetic north) at the point indicated by the direction-of-travel arrow.
Forward march! Now you know which direction to take.
Determining a direction of travel outdoors (determining a landmark situated at bearing 80) in relation to your position 1
You know your position and the angular direction to follow (e.g. bearing taken using the preceding method). How do you find the right direction to take?
Orient the compass towards the north by aligning the yellow line with the north (0) of the mobile magnetic disc (inner scale) and the direction-of-travel arrow.
Bring your eye to within about 1 cm of the small black sighting magnifier so that you can read the figures on the inner mobile dial.
Turn around while looking through the magnifier until the red line is positioned on the correct bearing (inner scale).
Carefully holding this position (ensuring that the dial does not move), raise your eye until the hole of the small black part that holds the magnifier and the hole on the upper plate of the compass line up, then find a landmark in this direction (bell tower, tree, lighthouse etc.).
You can use this landmark to guide your travel, taking any path. When you have reached it, you will have traveled in the approximate direction of the bearing you chose (in this example 80) (fig 8). From this point, proceed in the same manner until you reach a new landmark, and so on and so forth, until you have reached your final objective.
Determining your position outdoors using triangulation (I am lost ; how do I locate my position on the map) 1
You are lost ; how do you find your position on a map?
Move to a promontory from which you can observe in the landscape at least 2 landmarks (R1 and R2), also indicated on the map (mountains, lakes, bell towers). Ideally, the angle of these two points in relation to your position should be 90 (they must never be one behind the other or in opposite directions).
Sight the first point of landmark R1 by aligning your eye with the hole on the magnifier holder and the hole in the base plate of the compass.
Bring your eye to within about 1 cm of the magnifier so that you can simultaneously read the inner mobile scale and sight the landmark.
Once the needle has stabilized, look through the magnifier to read the value of bearing A on the inner mobile scale at the intersection of the direction-of-travel arrow (e.g. 340).
Place the map on a level surface and turn it so that the maps north is oriented towards the magnetic north indicated by the compass.
Find landmark R1 on the map. Orient the compass, starting at landmark R1 until the direction-of-travel arrow coincides with the bearing you measured before. Use one of the long edges of the compass to draw the measured bearing, passing through landmark R1.
Locate landmark R2, and then note the value of the bearing you have measured (B).
Turn the compass on the map (without moving the latter) until the direction-of-travel arrow of the compass lines up with bearing B. Draw a straight line, passing through R2.
You are here
Your position is thus at the intersection of the two bearings on the map.
We strongly recommend that you repeat the procedure a 3rd time with a third landmark (R3) for greater safety. Now you know where you are.
