Hi There, are you travelling by Motorbike or vehicle ?
If by 4wheels consider a fixed vehicle compass with variation adjusters.
If you need a handheld sighting/baseplate the Suunto MC-2G is probably one of the best ones out there 'G' standing for Global so it can be used anywhere.
As the guys say make sure you are familiar with using it. Having a back up, and good current mapping are essential.
You can get the Suunto in MEC stores in Canada for $73CAD
