The compass is affected by metal, such as your gun. Make sure you hold up the compass away from the gun. If you wear it around your next, just pull the compass as far as the cord allows. That's more than enough

If you suck at pacing, use small landmarks that you can see on the map to pace. A road is 250m away, so you have gone 250m when you reach it kind of thing
