  1. Forgiving and well built at a DGX price = WIN!

    There are a lot of low profile compasses out there that aren't very forgiving when held at slight angles and, whenever I've purchased a compass, I've always had to buy the wrist mount bungees separately (double the cost). I am happy to report that this compass is not only very forgiving when held at slight angles but that the boot and bungee that come with it are fantastic!

    I dive in the Pacific Northwest where the waters can sometimes get pretty murky, so I frequently use a compass to get around. Up to this point, there has only been one very expensive brand that I've trusted. DGX just changed that!

Compass Balance Zones

High quality analog compasses are designed for use within a certain area of the globe because the earths magnetic field not only varies horizontally, but also vertically, causing the needle to dip downward when the case is held level. The compass needle card is balanced with a small weight to counteract the downward dip, so the needle card does not drag or stick on the top or bottom of the capsule. If you take any compass to a significantly different part of the globe than where it was balanced, check the compass carefully before relying upon it. Our technical diving compasses are balanced either for the Northern Hemisphere or the Southern Hemisphere

Note that digital compasses, like the ones becoming popular in dive computers, do not have balance zones. Digital compasses are universal because they have a user 'calibration' feature, which is performed in the region where the diver plans to use the compass. A change in region simply requires a recalibration before use in a different location.
