How Do I Use a Prismatic Compass?

Answer

To use a prismatic compass, select the bearing on which you want to match, open the lid and fold it flat and then undo the knurled knob and move the bearing round to the top. Tighten the knurled knob and then line up the two illuminated sticks. Pointing the compass on the direction you want to go, walk forward ensuring the two illuminated sticks do not separate.
