Well, it's constantly changing, anyway. Compasses are essentially useless north of the arctic circle. Also, technically the north magnetic pole is
in the south Pacific. Interesting, the results would be.
Navigation via compass is way out of date, anyway. The GPS satellites don't rely on magnetic information, since the field is in constant flux. Of
course, there's a chance of mass satellite failure if the field died, since the electronics wouldn't be shielded from the cosmic rays.
