Designed for SERIOUS athletes looking for precision.Identical to a baseplate compass, this type of compass has a sighting glass for reading the compass and viewing the target to be reached.
Make sure the compass is flat when using it.
Your compass must be flat to detect the magnetic north correctly. Place your compass in the palm of your hand. When using a map, place the compass on the map on a flat surface.
If your compass is not detecting the north
Use your compass at sufficient distance from any magnetic sources which will affect its capacity to detect the north: high-voltage power lines, mobile phones, keys, metal objects, and even another compass can affect the direction.

Great compass that seems to be accurate, but it can be difficult to read in low light as the makings are quite difficult to see. If you only intend to use it good daylight it's fine.
