Works, not very accurate – Compass Keychain with Thermometer Reviews

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 easy to correct at manufacturer, just glue the bulb a bit higher.
Other:
Too bulky for keychain, unless you are one of those people who jingles whenever you move.
Bottomline:
Why not, throw it on your pack's zipper pull, and you'll have direction and temperature when you need them.
