Homework Help: Nautical Studies

Posted by Mike on Sunday, October 28, 2007 at 3:56am.

I am aware a magnetic compass is useless for navigational purposes in the region of the magnetic north pole. How far away from the magnetic north pole do you need to be before the magnetic compass will function effectively?

Depending on the answer does this mean a magnetic compass is suitable for use at the geographical north pole?
