    Easy to read

    posted by dxpkh on 04/13/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    The rotating bezel around the compass is stuck, so I can't use it for navigation. Don't plan to anyway This device may be too...

    Greay design with some minor build quality issues

    posted by T3Knical on 12/29/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    - Compass is surprisingly responsive for being a button compass - Thermometer appears to be only 3 degrees F off - Has a rotating degree plate to set direction of travel - Looks much more expensive than it is
    Cons:
    - Rotating plate is a "click" lock but for 90 degrees of its range, it spins freely making it likely not to stay put.

    posted by jzmtl on 06/17/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Very cheap, same thing from well known Finnish brand cost 6 times as much, and it works alright too. The compass is actually pretty accurate, I compared it with my $70 pro grade compass and it's pretty much dead on.
    Cons:
    The thermometer display lower than actual temperature, about 5 degrees lower in fact. Not that serious but it seems this is eas...
