For those who need a sighting compass, the Suunto MCA Compass features a mirror that locks open at 60, 120, and 180 degrees. Mirror compasses allow you to view the compass dial and background at the same time. Plus, the vertical line at the center of the mirror can be conceptually extended to the horizon, which helps you to more accurately target bearings. And in a pinch, the mirror can be used for signaling.

When you travel on different latitudes, the fixed declination means you don't have the ability to automatically resolve the difference between true north and magnetic north. However, the fixed declination provides all the data needed to make accurate calculations no matter your declination. The jewel bearing ensures precision in even harsh conditions. The base plate features centimeter and inch scales.

The Suunto MCA Compass uses a Two Zone System to achieve precise measurement. Back in the day, users had to purchase a compass balanced for one of 5 different zones. A Suunto compass is balanced based on only the northern and southern hemispheres. This means that Suunto compasses balanced for the northern hemisphere also provide accurate readings in many northern parts of the southern hemisphere. The Suunto MCA is designed for the northern hemisphere. If you are traveling very far south into the southern hemisphere, you may want to look for a Suunto compass balanced to that location.
