Can anybody tell me if it is a real compass or it is just a toy to rotate?
I mean, are there a mechanism that shows you the north like in Casio Protreks, for example?
Thank you very much
That depends on your defintion of a real compass. This doesn't have a magnetized needle or digital compass function like a Protrek series Casio, instead it features a rotating compass ring which may be used to find the direction during daylight hours.
Thank you, it is what I thought it would be, what a pity, I need a real compass. Anyway is beautiful.
its a compass in that you use the dial and hour hand to determine direction.
It is a real compass that requires brain power to use, much like how the ancients did it; using the sun.
And what happens at night? Or in a clouded day? Or in the middle of very high buildings? Too much used to my Casio's compass
