Greay design with some minor build quality issues – Compass Keychain with Thermometer Reviews

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.
Other:
Don't depend on this for any REAL navigation. I plan on this hanging on my pack strap and giving me quick reads while on a trail. If any real navigation is required I can pull out the real compass.
Bottomline:
Buy this and throw it on your pack.
