Default entender o comprender?

I notice that in a lot of places one of the first words you learn in spanish is the verb entender and in others it is comprender, both meaning to understand. In english we have to comprehend and to understand but they are used in different ways, we wouldn't say 'i comprehend you', but the spanish verbs seem to be used equivalently in beginners courses. Do they actually have equivalent meanings or would you use one rather than the other in certain situations and phrases?
