SOLLENTUNA, Sweden, December 14, 2010 - With innovation, function and design in focus the range has
been improved by offering a simpler and easy to understand selection of
compasses still covering the whole range from beginners through to expedition
use. Striking contrast color on the compass needle, a larger mirror for
better reading on mirror sighting compasses and a more secure grip on the
compass housing are examples of how the range options have been slimmed down
and redesigned to make life easier choosing the right com­pass for both
retailers and end users alike.

The renewed design is manifested by the new Field compass, using the
self-explanatory Silva 1-2-3-system for finding the compass bearing. New
colors, less information and distinct guiding symbols will show first time
navigators the right way. For the most advanced user Silva developed the
Expedition compass in two versions, a baseplate compass and a mirror sighting
compass for high precision navigation. To find the right direction in the
city, Metro is the best option. Choose your favourite colour out of five.
