          Comments about Davis Instruments Standard Hand Bearing Compass:

          LED is too dim even with new batteries and dark adapted eyes. Works great in Daylight. Practise counting up by fives to quickly read scale markings. Could use a few more numbers marked on the scale to improve readability on a bouncing boat.
