Battery Compass Spacing

Can I get away with positioning the edge of a here2 compass/gps about 20mm away from the non-cable end of a 22,000 mAh Lipo or should I forget that idea?

I dont see how being close to a battery would be a problem?

Batteries can absolutely be sources of EMF interference, especially on high current draw applications. 2cm seems awfully close. You can try it and see how things go, and then maybe add some MuMetal shielding if a mast is not feasible and interference presents an issue.

Thanks. The battery is top mounted so difficult to find a spot for the compass. I will try high above with some MuMetal between.
