The MCA-D employs Suunto s two-zone system to achieve precise, accurate readings regardless of location. Previously, most compasses functioned well in only one of five geographic zones. That s because the compasses were balanced differently based on the zone s inclination, i.e., the vertical intensity and direction of the Earth s magnetic field. However, as people began to travel more, it became clear that globe-hopping adventurers needed compasses with a greater geographical range. Suunto s two-zone system, by contrast, considers only the northern and southern hemispheres. In practice, this means that a Suunto compass designed for the northern hemisphere--as the MCA-D is--will still work for a fair distance into the southern hemisphere and vice-versa. Suunto is one of only two compass manufacturers to offer two-zone compasses.
The MCA-D, which also sports a patent-pending snap-lock that detaches easily from the lanyard, measures 2.2 by 0.6 by 3.3 inches (W x H x D) with the lid closed and weighs a mere 1.5 ounces. It s also backed by a lifetime warranty.
