Many cars have a built in electronic compass these days of course.
If investing in a stand alone compass vital you get one that allows you to
correct the reading to overcome magnetic interference around the dashboard.

The nearest my old bus gets to modernity is the absence of a starting handle. rolleyes.gif I would hope that anyone who used a compass to get a rough guide as to N/S etc would be parked up and outside the vehicle and even then it doesn't assist to much if the sun is out. Like the thing they used to put on pocket knives to remove stones from horse's hooves, not much use apart from the one time in your life you come across a horse and it has something lodged in it's frog and then everyone is thankful.

I still have my granddads pocket knife with one of those tools. He always said it was for getting boy scouts out of girl guides.
