Compass
« on: August 10, 2017, 09:18:21 AM »
I'm looking for a high quality compass, I've been searching for one that I can just install on the dashboard but majority of what I've found are just toys. I did happen to run across this brand named Silva, unfortunately they only sell in Sweden, ha. Has anyone installed a marine compass?

Why do you need compass in Zuk? I see a lot on Ebay. Just type your brand Silva! Mine comes with the Vitorinox multi special knives.

Trust me that if you have anything mounted, the error will be different depending on which way you are pointed.  Boating experience but also aiming a DISH TV on a big truck.  This is what you want.  https://www.amazon.com/Davis-Instruments-Standard-Bearing-Compass/dp/B001449AK2/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1503776012&sr=8-5&keywords=handheld+compass
It says 5 degree but you can estimate between the marks to about 1/4ths of the 5 degrees.  A little more expensive is a hand held GPS and you can mark your way points.  Question?

The way we drive it is a little over 50 miles to the beach maybe 35 as the seagull flies.  Nada here but we will report from the coast Monday
