What if the compasses are actually formulae?
Let me illustrate: Assume Lat/Long values are 10/25 and my compasses are N N N S S S N.
IF the compasses are operation codes for a formula, say, N means Double the Coordinates and S means Halve them.
I would double the values 3 times, then halve them 3 times and lastly double them again end result being the target coordinates
He have a set of starting coordinates and bearing parameters to feed the function. We can also safely assume there's only 1 end point, therefore, If we can define the function that takes all that input and returns a single consistent point, he have our target.
It's math intensive as hell. And won't work if my theory is wrong. I have no idea what to make of the highlighted compass. And overall what I'm saying is to reverse-engineer the fucking source code without a clue as to how it works...
On the mapping front: reverse the bearing of the highlighted compass and plot it, and it alone. That's all I can think of after messing with the google map.

Looks ~right for Victin's co-ords.

First of all, the compasses work as one would expect. This is to say that each one points to a specific (and different) point on the earth. With some fiddling (and then some educated guesses after I spotted the pattern), I was able to find the location each points to within a range of 0 to 3 miles. So here are the coordinates each compass points to, plus a nearby landmark:
Top Center: 53.4 , -2.9 (Sefton Park, Liverpool, United Kingdom)
Mid Left: 39.9, -75.1 (Johnson Park, Camden, New Jersey, United States)
Mid Center: 51.5, -0.2 (Kensington Gardens, London, United Kingdom)
Mid Right: -32.0, 115.9 (Queens Garden, Perth, Western Australia)
Lower Left: 47.5, -52.9 (Bowring Park, Newfoundland, Canada)
Lower Center: 47.5, -52.9 (Egmont Park, Brussels, Belgium)
Lower Right: 43.7, -79.4 (Glenn Gould Park, Toronto, Ontario, Canada)
And what do these places have in common? Well, according to Wikipedia's entry on Peter Pan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Pan), each of these cities has one of the seven Peter Pan statues made from the mould of the Kensington Gardens one. This is too perfect for it to be a coincidence and it also relates to the "silent music" riddle. The question is now what are we supposed to do with these statues? Furthermore, why is the Perth one in gold? Is it more significant than the rest? Hope this helped!

The connection to Peter Pan.
Missed enlil's edit. This is old news. My bet: There are echoes at each of the statues.

Also, Enlil. You da man. I want to heap you with limes and kill you at the same time.
I think there'll be no objections if I list this as That One Puzzle.

While I can't go for the next few days, sometime around next week I should be able to make the drive over and retrieve the letter found at the statue. I just need to get my gps working first and find some free time. I'll keep you guys posted (unless one of you graps a letter before me)
Edit: Wait, is it a physical letter or a "layar" thing? Cause I don't have a smart phone :< If it's smart phone related I might be SOL

The letter requires smartphone. (Maybe you could drag a friend?)
Zup's going to try for the one near him this weekend.
If he can't get it, I'm going to try for the one near me on Tuesday.
If I can't get it, would you be able to go for yours?
