Note: This "web page calculator" does not take into account the magnetic declination. It provides the true bearing to the Qiblih, not the compass bearing. The Global Positioning System (GPS) and mapping sites (such as Google Maps) give the correct bearing, but magnetic compasses do not. Click for more information on the Earth's magnetic field, and how to determine the magnetic declination for your location, if you are curious.
