pointing to the north pole – Mini Compass Ball with Window Mount Reviews

Pros:
You can mount the compass to any plane surface and it will point to the north pole. It's in a fluid-filled sphere, so you can move and rotate it in any direction and you can still read it (except you are looking directly on the window mount from below).
Cons:
It's a very bad build quality. There is a 1cm diameter air bubble in the sphere. Some color-flecks are inside it. The window-mount is wry.
Other:
When you look on the compass from above, you can see all directions correctly. But when you look on it from the side (when it is mounted on a vertical surface) you see the direction you are comming from.
Bottomline:
Well, it works and faces to north.
