    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: * It does stick to the glass. * You don't feel too bad when you find out it doesn't work since it's not expensive. * Easy to use, place close enough to a planet with a magnetic field (Will NOT!, repeat, NOT! work on mars!!!) * Does point in A direction.

    Cons: * Does not necessarily point north. * Seems to be covered with some kind of oily substance (?!) * Did I mention It doesn't point north?

    Other: If you are looking for a compass, try one of the other models, this one is a waste of your money.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: I bought it 3 month ago and I now have it in my car, it is a cool stuff in your car :) The sucker pad is good build quality I think, it never fall down in my car... Not really "THE" compass but this one is cheap.

    Cons: There is a little bubble of air in the compass, it is not the most important but I find this not really good :( It makes it cheap :(

    Other: Buy it it is sooooooo cheap! But it is a cool thing :) A cool gift too but I wouldn't like to receive this as the only gift for my birthday or my saint valentine! lol

  • pointing to the north pole

    posted by chillkroete on 05:40:08 G4T 06/04/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: You can mount the compass to any plane surface and it will point to the north pole. It's in a fluid-filled sphere, so you can move and rotate it in any direction and you can still read it (except you are looking directly on the window mount from below).

    Cons: It's a very bad build quality. There is a 1cm diameter air bubble in the sphere. Some color-flecks are inside it. The window-mount is wry.

    Other: Well, it works and faces to north.

  • simple compass

    posted by tekster on 19:54:23 G1T 14/01/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Easy to use compass. Just stick it to your car window and you're set to go.
    This item is able to rotate around smoothly and freely. No problems of it being stuck for a long period of time.

    Cons: The direction that I read off the compass is the opposite direction that I'm going. So if I'm going east, it will show me west. Got to do some manual adjustments.
    In dark areas, this compass is of no use as I can't see a thing. Wonder if there's a glow in dark type.

    Other: Cheap and handy.

  • New ones are pointing correctly

    posted by desolder on 01:08:15 G5T 09/05/2008 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Unlike the other reviewer, mine came with the correct orientation for a window mounted compass, i.e. the compass will rotate so the direction you see on the ball represents the direction you are facing. I suppose the supplier realized their mistake and corrected it. I used this to replace the incorrectly built compass on the combo bicycle bell/compass, which did have this problem.

    Cons: The suction doesn't stay! It falls off after only a few minutes. This is not a problem for me since I only used it to replace the compass on SKU 11761.
    Also, the rotation is not very smooth. I guess you can't expect much for a buck and change.

    Other: You may need to glue this onto the windshield or dashboard if you want it to stick.

  • it's backwards for a car

    posted by teknobabble on 21:32:36 G5T 09/05/2007 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Small, sticks well to window

    Cons: Compass is made backwards for a window mounted compass. It would work if you held the compass and looked at the front end of it - unfortunately on the car window you look at the back of the compass. (ie: on my window, travelling East, the window side is East the side facing me is west -glancing at it you'd think you were travelling west)

    Other: Unfortunately someone didn't design this one properly!
