Magnetic North Movement is Increasing in Speed

This explains why my declination settings seem to be a bit off, now that I've dug out a couple of my more accurate compasses. Declination in my location USED to be (about three years ago) about 9 degrees east of compass north. It appears to be traveling west much faster than usual. After a recently purchased a new wrist compass and was cross-checking it with my most accurate compass (Brunton Geo-Transit), I noticed declination now appears at only 7 degrees east of compass north. I will never abandon my map & compass skills (so strongly instilled in me from my scouting and military days), but it is a very good thing our constellation of GPS satellites remain aloft. Hence, I suppose, one of the reasons for the creation of the U.S. Space Force, to help monitor and safeguard such things against the Sky-Pirate opportunists of this day and age.

It is need to calculation between starting point and destination place. But magnetic pole is not static due to its magnetic and compasses are not work virtually
