** Although he can and does use a literal compass as a focus for the spell, Harry's also used various objects as plumb lines (leans in the direction of the target), sensations on the skin ([[StealthPun gets warmer or colder]] based on direction), and a wind-up duck ([[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer this happened]]) (walks in the direction of the target) in the past. It's a very versatile field of magic.
