Customer Reviews for Orienteering Compass
2 out of 5 Poor compass
Newitts Verified Purchase (15 Oct 2021)
Ordered 16 of these compasses for a one off children's navigation exercise. Although they look good, they are actually pretty inaccurate and difficult to use unless they are held completely level. Even then the needle moves around and never completely settles, making accurate navigation tricky. One of the 10 compasses didn't even work and the needle pointed East to West! Most annoyingly the outer numbers on the dial is actually in mils with the inner dial being degrees. I didn't notice this when I ordered them as the photo on the website was too small and no mention of this was made in the description. Not much help unless you happen to be in the military On the whole I wish I had not ordered these as it made the navigation exercise far harder than it should have been.

Arrived safely and on time. Fairly basic and need to be kept level for them to work properly. Also watch out as the centre's can pop out easily if handled roughly. But good for the price. My group enjoyed getting to grips with learning how to navigate.
