I just took a 3 hour basic map and compass navigation course through REI, it was actually really well done. Went through map and field bearings and some useful rules of thumb for triangulation. I know exactly what you're talking about with that fuzzy feeling, if you're on a long hike or run in unfamiliar territory it's probably good to have a compass just in case.
