"Calibrate the Compass - CM2 closes the gap between True North (CM2) and Magnetic North (business view). Compasses point to MAGNETIC NORTH, which varies from True North by an error called VARIATION. Compasses also are subject to their own errors; this is called DEVIATION. ... Because the Magnetic North Pole moves, the variation changes from year to year.."
