Nautical Push Button Compass:
A Nautical Push Button Compass is a device that indicates direction. It is one of the most important instruments for navigation. Magnetic compasses are the most well-known type of compass. They have become so popular that the term “compass” almost always refers to a magnetic compass. While the design and construction of this type of compass have changed significantly over the centuries, the concept of how it works has remained the same. Magnetic compasses consist of a magnetized needle that can rotate so it lines up with the Earth’s magnetic field. The ends point to what is known as magnetic north and magnetic south. Scientists and historians do not know when the principles behind magnetic compasses were discovered. Ancient Greeks understood magnetism. As early as 2,000 years ago, Chinese scientists may have known that rubbing an iron bar (such as a needle) with a naturally occurring magnet, called a lodestone, would temporarily magnetize the needle so that it would point north and south. Early compasses were made of a magnetized needle attached to a piece of wood or cork that floated freely in a dish of water. As the needle would settle, the marked end would point toward magnetic north.
How to read a Nautical Push Button Compass:
A compass is a tool used to show directions. It has a needle that spins and always points north. You can turn the compass so that the needle points north on the dial. If you know you should be heading southwest, then you can head in the right direction. You will also see “compass roses” printed on maps. The direction on a compass can be read as the number of degrees away from zero. This is how you measure bearings.
