On Earth the planet's magnetic poles line up fairly well with the geographic poles. This makes things like navigation very straightforward as all compasses point to (roughly) the north pole.
However there are planets where this is not the case (Uranus for example).
Obviously Uranus is a gas giant but what would be the effect on an Earth-like planet if the magnetic poles were so dramatically different? As I mentioned above navigation would be a lot harder but what other effects would this have on the planet and its climate?
