Jack Sparrow's compass.

"How can we sail to an island that nobody can find with a compass that doesn't work?"
"Aye, the compass doesn't point North, but we're not trying to find North, are we?
Will Turner and Joshamee Gibbs[src]

A compass was a navigational instrument that measured directions in a frame of reference that is stationary relative to the surface of the earth. It was used to point to the earth's magnetic poles so it would show what direction is north. It was first invented in the Han Dynasty and then spread across the world. Jack Sparrow was known to have owned a compass that could point whatever its user wanted most.
