I respectfully disagree with 2Gringos about the compass.
If you do any good ole fashoned navigation with a chart and compass, they are VERY useful to take bearings with. You can better see what you are taking a bearing on (that it is a radio tower, and not a nearby steeple), and the bearing itself is far more accurate than what you would take from a hand bearing compass. Finally, because I have tried both the binoculars and the hand bearing compass; I also find it faster to take a bearing with the binoculars with integrated compass. YMMV
That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!
