Please accept our apologies for the delayed response.

While the device is robust, in order to protect your Suunto MC-2 Global compass you should purchase the Suunto Nylon Pouch for compasses (link below).

In order to avoid paint abrasion you should avoid storing the compass in wet environments and avoid using chlorine/alcohol based cleaning substances and always store the compass in the nylon pouch.

When you purchase the compass the wrist lock comes attached. You press down the black wrist lock on the middle and then you move it to desired area and let go and it will "lock" itself.

Question

My compass no longer points north, do you suggest I send it in or can I make the repair myself?

The compass' polarity has switched due to some sort of magnetic field interference. There are numerous discussions on the web talking about how you can reverse and strengthen the polarity of your compass needle using a strong magnet. Does Suunto recommend that the compass be sent into a dealer for repair or can an individual repair the needle using a strong magnet to the same kind of quality that a dealer can do? Thank you.

Question

How can I clean out the compass?

I was hiking in the desert and fine sand has worked its way in between the baseplate and housing. It makes it difficult to shoot an accurate azimuth using the mirror.

Question

Is MC-2 working well?

I bought Sunnto Mc-2 Explorer from Malaysia and I will use it in Singapore. It is made in Finland. Will my MC-2 work accurately in Asia?
I noted that the MC-2 is balanced for the northern or for the southern hemisphere, the balancing zone depends on where the compass was purchased.
Any effect from above issue on my MC-2.
Thanks,

Since your compass was purchased from Malaysia and you will use it in Singapore, you should encounter no issue using it there.

Hi,
The manual for the MC2Global has very poor diagrams on the second last page.

http://ns.suunto.com/Manuals/MC-2_Global/Userguides/Suunto_MC-2_Global_instructions_multi.pdf

Can you please update this pdf and/or send me a new link?
Thanks

There are two versions of the MC-2 compass. The MC-2 is balanced for the northern or for the southern hemisphere, the balancing zone depends on where the compass was purchased. If you use a compass that is balanced for the northern hemisphere in Australia, unfortunately it will not work. The other version of the compass is the MC-2 global, it has a global needle and it works everywhere.

The compass is normally sold together with the user manual. You can also use the MC-2 Global manual, it can be found at the URL below:

Question

Will my MC-2 compass work in Tanzania?

I live in California. I have a MC-2 compass and I am going to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro. I believe the declination in Arusha is -0 degrees 10' 54" or as I take it true north and magnetic north are almost exactly the same there. Will my MC-2 work there and do I need to do any special adjustments? Thank you.

You will not need to make any special adjustments, your MC-2 will function normally in the region you plan to visit.
