This is only a hypothetical question that I hope will lead to a discussion of navigational tools and how we use them, or think of them, such as:
What information can a compass provide?
What information can a map provide?
Does the usefulness of each differ based on location or terrain?
A map and compass work together, but by isolating them through a hypothetical question we can take a closer look at the merits of each on its own.
So here is my hypothetical - IF you had to choose betwen a map or a compass for your next trip, which would you pick and why?
