    * It does stick to the glass. * You don't feel too bad when you find out it doesn't work since it's not expensive. * Easy to use, place close enough to a planet with a magnetic field (Will NOT!, repeat, NOT! work on mars!!!) * Does point in A direction. * Does not necessarily point north. * Seems to be covered with some kind of oily substance (?!) *...

    Unlike the other reviewer, mine came with the correct orientation for a window mounted compass, i.e. the compass will rotate so the direction you see on the ball represents the direction you are facing.

    Small, sticks well to window Compass is made backwards for a window mounted compass. It would work if you held the compass and looked at the front end of it - unfortunately on the car window you look at the back of the compass. (ie: on my window, travelling East, the window side is East the side facing me is west -glancing at it you'd think you were ... Read more
