Rated 1 out of 5 by from There is nothing that you could possibly say about the functionality of this product that would make anyone want to use it. It points the wrong way, which is the thing you want LEAST in a compass. Best thing I can say is, they replaced the first one politely, quickly and willingly. So now I have two - both of which point to (different) wrong Norths. 5 stars for customer service, zero stars for the product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So which way is North ? Bought this to fit to my bike for off roading. Doesn't point even remotely towards North. Its at least 90 degrees out and that's in clear space with no metallic influences. Better off navigating by the sun on a cloudy day. Cant give it a zero stars but that's what it deserves.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work in a car I'm returning this as it is permanently pointing SW. I did wonder how, when proper car compasses cost £30 or more, Maplin's could do this so cheaply. The answer is that it obviously has no magnetic shielding to block out all the sources of interference in a car. As it stands, this product is useless.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from USELESS ITEM!! Bought this yesterday without reading the review. The compass points to any North you like. Turn the base and the compass turns as well???????? Needless to say I will be taking it back asap.
