Not bad – Compass with Map Measuring Ruler Lanyard Reviews

posted by PedroKV on 12/14/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
-Nice for a look -Strap -Ruler for 1:25.000 and 1:50.000 and a milimeter -Ruler 0-120mm -Magnifying glass in the middle -Stable arrow
Cons:
-Rotating is not smooth, after unscrewing it was hard to screw it and fasten, has only 2 screws instead of 4. -Illuminating colour is not exactly put where it should be -The fixed black ring shows north 2 degrees right from the printed line on transparent bottom (axle of compass). Not sure if it is a con or not, as at my city it is nearly a value of magnetic declination (2 degrees 49 minutes east). But ie. at Madeira it is 6 deg 55 min W.
Other:
I can get the same for a nearly same price locally, as I realized. But have to pay posting fee.
Bottomline:
I need it only for setting up TV antennas, so for it's price it is good. For orienteering I will buy something better.
