Compass in Map
Compass in Map

Map is important for a trip in unknown environment, which can help us to get to the target clearly. But it is not true that everyone can use the map easily, because it is hard to match the direction of map with the actual one. This product embeds a small compass onto the top left corner of the map. The user can modify the direction of map according to the compass, so as to make it consistent with the real surrounding. It helps to tell the direction and routine quickly and exactly.
