  1. Just wondering. Do you not add any degrees after you've lined up both red arrows on your map?

  2. You're right, you add degrees onto your compass bearing, to allow for magnetic variation.
    I left that out to keep it simple, as you'll still end up very near to your destination.
    I'll be posting a video shortly with an explanation of magnetic variation.
