New ones are pointing correctly – Mini Compass Ball with Window Mount Reviews

Pros:
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. I suppose the supplier realized their mistake and corrected it. I used this to replace the incorrectly built compass on the combo bicycle bell/compass, which did have this problem.
Cons:
The suction doesn't stay! It falls off after only a few minutes. This is not a problem for me since I only used it to replace the compass on SKU 11761.
Also, the rotation is not very smooth. I guess you can't expect much for a buck and change.
Other:
Bottomline:
You may need to glue this onto the windshield or dashboard if you want it to stick.
