- "(Mr Cmot Dibbler sells an excellent compass [...] As a means of finding your bearings, however, they are totally useless)."

This may have as much to do with the usual lack of quality associated with Dibbler's products, as it does with the fact that Roundworld compasses work because of the Earth's magnetic field -- on Discworld the equivalent is the enchanted needle that always points to the Hub.

Or the legend of Sleepy Hollow in Roundworld terms.
