This is a really good compass for the price.
Works like any other standard compass
Large baseplate which is a personal preference
Easy to read off the bearing
Some of them can be off by a bit on the housing but this can be compensated by quite easily.
I wouldn't like to rely on it for important navigation on the mountains.
I use these for training my scouts and they are great! i don't have to risk giving them 25 dollar compasses for training and the are cheap enough to give them one each. They are accurate for training and they bring them with them on hikes so they use what they have practiced on equipment that they are familiar with.
