More than 3000 years ago Chinese feng-shui practitioners used lodestone - a naturally occurring magnet to orient in the environment and find iron rich ores; probably not for navigation at this time. Scale maps (of geographic areas) were attempted even earlier but were fraught with limited accuracy. Scale plans of buildings and cities were drawn up at least 4000 years ago.

The Astrolabe was used over 1500 years ago (there are even some Bronze age (3000 years old) remnants that could be astrolabe parts)

The compass as we know it is about 1000 years old.

Relatively accurate scale maps developed over the ages and became useful about 400 years ago. (In the 1970's maps of South America were shown to have considerable mistakes, this was discovered by satellite imagery)
