The uses of the Gyro Compass

It is used for finding the right direction. Unlike magnetic compass, gyro compass is not hampered by external magnetic field. It is used to find correct North Position, which is also the earth’s rotational axis. Its repeater system must be present in the steering platform for emergency steering.

Truly it is a lot better and accurate than magnetic compasses. the fact that it cannot be hampered by any external magnetic field is a big plus.
I really like it
