The (navigational) compass is one of the tools available from the Magic Box for Whiteboard for Windows. The compass can be resized and rotated, and the red bearing line can be independently rotated. This can be used on the Whiteboard canvas or over the Windows desktop in desktop mode in Whiteboard for Windows. It can be used for learning about directions, maps, and bearings.

Not to be confused with the Compass (drawing tool), which is also available in Whiteboard (Android and Windows versions). This tool is used similar to the Dutch koershoekmeter and the Breton Plotter https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Breton_plotter.
