You should also avoid metal objects like rocks and trees while using a compass. While it’s ideal to carry one with you at all times, it may not be possible in an emergency. Aside from these, you may get separated from your mate, so it’s important to be aware of other navigation tips for survival.

First of all, learn how to navigate without a compass and map. Using the map and compass correctly is vital for surviving in the wild.
