But we were discussing Magnetic North Anomolies, not maps or hiking. I know if I was going hiking the difference in the 2 North Poles only we were only talking about one, Magnetic North.

A Compass does Not nor ever has shown True North, it only shows Magnetic North. The reason it was invented because there are not physical reffernces to Magnectic North, the only way to find it is by a compass. Not the Stars, or the Sun, and most maps are aligned to True North, Not Magnetic North. Some maps are to Mag North, but just relying on a compass to tell you where True North is you will get lost. It only tells where Magnetic North is.

Lol I must not be explaining myself correctly. I use true north to verify if the compass is working correctly, and to orient myself. Once I know it is working correctly, then I can whip out my compass whenever the path or trail changes directions, and use magnetic north to find which direction I am going compared to true north. I use military maps, so I need to do it this way. Forget I even brought it up lol.

You are one that kept saying we could not find True North. We were never looking for True North, we are not going on a Hike. Read the First Page of this Thread. The reason compasses have to be callibrated for a hike and a map before you take off is because a compass only shows Magnectic North. And we started off talking about Magnetic North Anomolies, Has absolutely nothing.. nada nada nada .... with True North at all. I would think with all of you education you should have learned there are 2 poles True and Magnectic and they have never been in the same place since the earth moved 23.5 degrees off of it's axis. Talking about True North and we can't read a compass, just show how little you know.

Everyone, Go To the First Page of this Thread, "True North" is "Never " mentioned once, not at all mentioned. When we said North we meant Magnetic North ...because that is what we were talking about.

I dare you to read the first page. GO Read it.

True North + declination = magnetic north

True north is part of the equation. Without knowing where true north is you cannot tell if your compass is giving you a strange reading.

Quote one sentence of my debashery that mentions the world "true North" as opposed to having a reference of how much uneducated fools, who have never used a compass until this thread was started, have a reference of how "much" they were off. Again, you're still grasping unto this as if your life is defined by it. Science, truth, experimental FACT, have all proved this thread bogus, yet you hang on. Say's alot about you.

Rhode Island
About 30' east
Measured with two different compasses.
One is a plain old compass that I've had all my life and the other is a cheapo float one on the side of a crank type flashlight.
I checked with my wife's iphone compass app when this thread began and the reading was the same as it is using today's readings using real compasses.

My house always pointed north by compass, now not so much.

It would be part of the equation if we were talking about True North or trying to find it. We were talking about how Magnetic North was way off. True North was not in the conversation or part of it in anyway. If you are looking for Magnetic North you use a compass because it has a Magnet in it, because Magnetic North is where the Magnetic Pole is , not where True North is. Now if I was going on a Hike, I would callibrate my compass to the difference in where Magnectic North is compared to True North. We were not talking about going on a hike. We started this thread pointing out how far off the norm "Magnetic North was." I will say again, True North was not in the conversation because that is not what we were talking about, I just went all over page 2 of this thread no where on page 2 does anyone mention True North. I don't know how many pages went to where some one said well you can read a compass because you don't know where True North is. I know where True North it no one ever said they didn't know where True North was because "I will say again, We were NOT talking about true North at all, don't care where it is, because it is not the same as Megnectic North. This thread started off and everyone was really enjoying it until, True North was brought up because someone didn't read the begining and knew what we were even talking about, since then, everyone is fed up with trying to explain the subject of the thread, and this is my last time to try to get it back to talking about Magnectic North. So you all just keep going on about True North since the Subject of the Thread is not even discussed anymore.

Why can't we refrain from personal attacks in this thread?? This is the main reason most people stopped posting here.
I didn't post this thread to enable fighting or name calling. This is ridiculous.

Which of the 2 poles are they hiding the truth about. Not the Magnetic Pole moving it is all in the Main Stream Media, We know that it is not some secret. If you are talking about the True North Pole moving and an big secret, if it just moved 10 degrees, it would kill more than half the population of the planet, I doubt anyone could keep that a secret. When the Magnetic Pole starts moving at an alaming rate that even Scientist are concerened about it can cause "poler anomolies all over the planet" Now they can try to keep that a secret and not talk about it publicly but if everyone on the Planet checks their "Magnetic Compass" and it is way off just in a few areas of the planet that means a Magnetic Anomoly is accuring in that area. I am not the one confused, if I were confused or delusionial I would not even be repeating the same thing over and over to people that keep saying we are stupid and can't read a compass and do not even know where True North is. I know where both of the Poles are right now do you.

I'll explain it again then, everyone showing "anomalies" in their compass readings simply do not understand how to read a compass. Anything I could explain to you all????

Mad Dog, If there is anywhere else that this could be continued about the anomolies, and the members that have worked so hard making the maps let me know. I have a website you can use, paid for. I really think what you brought to our attention is very important. If multi poles start forming over areas, the government will not tell us. All of the people in SC and NC saying their is a strong magnetic pull in their area, and the fact that the one in Alabama are completely East at the same time they are having earthquakes that have never happened in that area before, is very important to keep up with. I am not going to even respond to the main thread crasher anymore, he has moved on to saying a 12 year old genius, is a dummy. Serious about the offer, Just U2U me.

Let me know and so glad this is not going to end. It could end up the saving of so many lives are at least let us know the truth about what is going on. Please let me know if I can help. Don't forget me.

you can, if you had done it a year ago and left the compass alone without moving, you can see if its off or not. Mine is fine, it shows a offset +1 compared to last year but this would be the normal case because MN moves slowly
