With the February 2009 changes to compass, when you are at a cannon it is broken: it is no longer relative to the 1st person view of your pirate, INSTEAD is relative to the direction of the ship...but when you get off the cannon, it returns (sometimes) to your first person view.

It is FURTHER broken, in that it isn't actually relative to the ship perfectly; instead, depending on which cannon you get on, it is rotated 30 or 180 degrees from what the ship's orientation would dictate. Moving your cannon does not affect the compass (as it should) anymore.

You don't have to leave port to test it out...just launch your ship then grab a cannon to look around.

Excellent thread Edward!
The compass serves not only as a navigation instrument but as a radar screen for ranging targets to be attacked.
