A sundial compass is a combination of these two instruments, consisting of a


portable sundial which is attached over a compass via a hinge. There are some
adjustable legs that need to be used to level the instrument if not on level ground. The
gnome is hinged and needs to be put in the up position where it locks into place. There
should be what looks like a protractor that is to the right of the gnome that is on a hinge,
and this needs to be flipped up as well. The protractor is used to set the sundial to the
correct latitude angle, while the compass is used to find true north based on the area’s
magnetic north declination. Once your sundial compass has been leveled, set to the
correct latitude, and to true north, a shadow will be cast onto the sundial’s face by the
gnome. For use in the southern hemisphere, the same procedure is followed with the
exception that true South must be found instead of true North.
