Well that would mean exalted compasses would default to pointing at the elemental pole of earth unless specifically made to resonate with another element.

If there are compasses in creation, and it makes sense there would be...

I would make them a product of thaumaturgical magic. I would make them so they would always point true to one elemental pole.

A sailor with a compass of Air and Earth, using sail and lore skills, could estimate where they are in creation; the higher the skill, the better the estimate.

If I remember, the book particular to sailing mentions just that. Compasses have a small jade needle, and they point to the Pole of Earth.
