    Interesting. How could Apple miss something like this. It should be 0-359 not 1-360.

    [​IMG]Depends on your point of view. If you are in aviation and you are headed north it is 360. (think about it... ever hear of "runway 00"? no you hear "runway 36" Pretty sure that in maritime situations it is refered to 360 as well. I prefer hearing "heading 360" vrs " heading 000"

    Maybe it is a country by country thing... or a trade by trade thing...
    but I am pretty sure its 360 universal and not 000 or 0deg

    There are 360 degrees. You learn something new every day, eh? ;)

    Sorry I messed that up, I was looking at the point of view how on the dial it says 0 not 360.

    Ahh... ok well believe it or not... most Compasses show either a "N" or a "0" for North...


    You are a heading of 360 degrees... but your compass will be reading 0 deg.
