simple compass – Mini Compass Ball with Window Mount Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Easy to use compass. Just stick it to your car window and you're set to go.
This item is able to rotate around smoothly and freely. No problems of it being stuck for a long period of time.
Cons:
The direction that I read off the compass is the opposite direction that I'm going. So if I'm going east, it will show me west. Got to do some manual adjustments.
In dark areas, this compass is of no use as I can't see a thing. Wonder if there's a glow in dark type.
Other:
Would be good to have the words glow in dark.
Have not tested it being exposed directly to the sun. Think it may be affected as heat is always a killer for things in the car due to heat buildup.
Bottomline:
Cheap and handy.
