While navigating the first important task is to identify which way is north. If you have a compass and skilled enough to use it you just need to check it to identify out which way is north. Other wise you will need to use the sun or stars to figure out where is north.

Once you have done that, you can position your body in the right way to allow you use your sundial for the time of the day and reading becomes possible. While oriented north, you can identify the closed objects nearby you contrasting them with your map and doing so will position your character's cursor on it. The more skilled your Navigation skill, the more accurate will be the position. Keep in mind that closing your map will reset the position and you will have to start the process all over again. [1]
