Electronic Digital Compass with
Electro-Luminescent LCD Display
We are pleased to offer this Electronic Digital Compass with Electro-Luminescent LCD Display at a full 50 percent
The digital compass is perfect for traveling in a car or truck, camping, off-roading, or boating.
No wiring is necessary since this low power digital compass is battery operated.
The solid state digital compass is ultra-reliable with no moving parts and offers 5 degree resolution.
The magnetic heading is indicated in three ways on the large 2 1/4 inch (5.7 cm) LCD display.
The upper left corner of the display shows the heading in 5 degree increments from 0 to 355 degrees.
A compass rose occupies the main area of the LCD display and moves in 22 1/2 degree increments.
The directional letters of the cardinal points (N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, NW) are located in the upper right corner of the display.
There are also indicators for calibration required (at initial power-up) and magnetic signal disturbance.
The display can be tilted to any angle over a 45 degree range.
By touching the Light Button the Electro-Luminescent backlight turns on, and automatically shuts off after a few seconds.
Calibration is performed when the batteries are initially installed, or when the digital compass is moved from one area
in the vehicle or boat to another.
Calibration just takes a few seconds and simply requires turning the car or vessel in a full circle.
So the next time the digital compass is turned on, the correct magnetic
heading is displayed because the calibration parameters are stored in memory.
If a recalibration is required, a reset button is located on the back of the unit.
The digital compass includes three Duracell AAA batteries, and hook and loop self adhesive tape for easy mounting.
The digital compass can be used in boats, however, sailboats
under very large angles of heel will not yield accurate results.
The digital compass is 2 7/8 inches (7.3 cm) wide, 2 5/16 inches (5.9 cm) deep, 3 7/8 inch (9.8 cm) tall,
and weighs 4.0 ounces (112 grams) with batteries installed.
The Electronic Digital Compass with Electro-Luminescent LCD Display comes with a two year limited warranty and
is offered at only $29.98. We are currently out of stock of this compass and are hoping to find a new supplier within the next few weeks.
