wander (gyro)

The gyro maintains its alignment in space, the direction of true North relative to the gyro changes as the earth rotates and the observer's position in space moves through positions 2 and 3 to 4. This is apparent wander. Its value is zero at equator and increases as one moves toward the poles where it is maximum.
The movement of the spin axis of a gyroscope from its original position. Its value is the maximum at the poles and the least at the equator. This is one of the errors or shortfalls in a gyroscope.
