What is the difference between the north pole and the magnetic north pole?

When using a compass for navigation, the local magnetic declination should be considered, as this tells the traveller how far away their compass will be pointing from true north. Magnetic declination can be as much as 45 degrees – this would mean that a compass pointing NW would be pointing at true north.
