Compass ALWAYS points to Magnetic North. You must resolve your direction from there.

How do I get the compass working right


Sounds like there is a magnetic field interfering with your compass. Something close to the compass is deflecting the needle, so look for the source close to the compass location.

How would i define compass needle


A compass needle is a thin steel strip. It has been magnetized. It has a north end and a south end. If you can float the needle on water or balance it on a sharp point it will spin so the North end points north and the south end points south. People can use this to find their way.

When compass is used the second hand points west instead of north


Are you wearing a ring on your finger that may be magnetic?
That could throw a compass off.

How does a compass always point to due north?


"Due North," by definition, is the direction towards the earth's north pole; or, visually at night, towards Polaris, the north star. Therefore, compasses generally do NOT point towards due North but, rather, point towards "magnetic north," as the other responder described, which is a variably located at some distance from True North, depending upon where the north-locating compass is situated on our planet. In most circumstances magnetic North is close enough so that people are willing to accept it as North in general terms. However, depending on your location, and upon seasonal changes caused by Earth's wobbling rotation (called precession) true North can be many degrees off from magnetic (from your compass's) North. In those cases true North must be determined using declination charts, which will tell you how many degrees to add or subtract on you compass in order to determine true North by the Magnetic North your compass is pointing to. For example, if magnetic North is 10 degrees west of true North at your compass's location (that is, your compass is actually pointing 10 degrees to the "left" of North), then you would correct by considering the +10-degree bearing point on your compass dial as True North--and, likewise, add 10 degrees to any bearing line you happen to determine using your compass. You have one other way of finding True North, which is celestially, by sighting towards the Pole star, aka Polaris, aka the North Star...that is, providing that the sky is UNcloudy and unsunny enough for the star to be visible. Of course, that only works for those located in the morthern hemisphere. Those south of the equator have a "south pole" star but it is not as accurate as Polaris in the northern hemisphere.

Just got my husband a casio pro trek sgw100-1 - we calibrated the compass but east and west are switched - north and south are fine - any ideas? thx


As a pure shot in the dark, are you sure that you calibrated it so that it was pointing to the north when it should be and not to south?

If it was pointing south instead of north, then East and West would be reversed.

Sounds a bit daft but better than the directions of east and west changing?

Check your calibration perhaps?

Compass is no longer pointing North


I had the same issue. I found that if you re-calibrate the compass the same way you did the first time, then it will act properly. I've had to do this a couple of times and it works.

It worked my Early Warning EW-3400 Radar Detector's Compass is now Calibrated.
