I've actually had two compasses fail on me. First for whatever reason lost it's ability to find magnetic north, it randomly pointed wherever it wanted.

Second was a pin on ball type (yes I know cheap), but it lost all water in it and stopped spinning.

I've also had GPS batteries die.

Mostly I use a GPS to mark things while scouting, especially a new area, mark a hot looking spot to come back to it later. I also mark my game cameras when I leave them out.

For navigation, don't use the GPS much
