"Good haul this year. Thanks for the Broom Compass, it's excellent; beats Hermione's — she got me a homework planner."
Ronald Weasley on his Christmas presents[src]

A Broom Compass is a broomstick accessory that helps the rider find the direction they are travelling in. They can be clipped onto broomsticks for long journeys. They are made of brass.

The Broomstick Servicing Kit Hermione Granger gave Harry Potter for his thirteenth birthday included a small brass broom compass.[1] Harry Potter gave one such compass to Ron Weasley in 1995 as a Christmas present. Ron described it as "excellent".[2]
