Questions about this item:
Will this compass fit the Aeris XR-2?
RANDALL A Yes. I have the XR2 and replaced my damage compass with the item pictured. Still working great!
Olivier B Thanks to everybody for these quick answers ;)
FRED W E I did not purchase the compass module. I used what I believe is a standard compass from my own gear. I do not believe that the Aeris XR 27 takes a special compass, and since this is an Aeris compass I would assume that it fits
HARRY S I am not sure. I actually put this module in an old Beuchat console and it fit perfectly. I would assume it is a standard configuration.
Will this model fit in an AquaLung Pivot console? My existing (leaking) compass is an Aeris model, black base with a single side-view window. My AquaLung Pivot has three windows.
SPOTTY K Sorry Paul, dont know if it will fit or not. I suspect it will but not 100% sure. Spotty
DAVID G Sorry, I don't have a AquaLung Pivot console and don't know how they are constructed.
My application was on a inline ?basic? console.
RITA R I was able to place this compas in my Wisdom Sherwood computer. I think it would fit your Pivot also.
Just bought this. Do I just use a screwdriver to remove the round plastic cover on the back of the Aeris XR-1 console and push the compass into the hole? What keeps it in place?
It is just a friction fit. When you pop the old one out and go to put the new one in, be quite careful to align it correctly before you push it in, as it can't be turned once installed, and getting it back out could damage it. Inspect the position of the old one carefully!
Glenn G Thanks Rick. Got it installed with no problem. I appreciate the tip.
Just pop out the plastic cover and you can insert the compass into the slot. It's kept in my grooves or something of the sort. Seems fairly solid in place, I dive every day and haven't had a problem with it at all.
Glenn G Thanks Markam. That's just the advice I needed. Must be nice to dive every day instead of a couple times a year...
First off this is a great question. This is what I do I use a flat head and slid it around and go under the compass it should pop out it dose for me. It is difficult but use a flathead. And when you reinstal the compass it should have the round lip to hold it in place. Now if you can not get it out use alittle vaseline if you need help get the compass out of the housing. I hope all gose well. Safe diving
Glenn G Thanks Suzanne. I don't have an existing compass, just a plastic cover that seems very tight fitting. The screwdriver trick should do it.
You may need two screw drivers to pry it out.
When you put the compass in - make sure it is lined up correctly. Line up the lubber line and magnetic N so both are on the top. Line up the console with the top pointing N. When you put in the compass you will look in the viewing panel that will be "0" degrees and N at the top.
It is not real easy to put it in and take it out. You only want to do it once.
Glenn G Thanks Thomas. It should be in later today and I'll give the two screwdrivers a go.
It sounds like you do not currently have a compass in the console. If that is the case, then yes, remove the cover/ring. Removing the cover/ring and installing the compass will be slightly easier if you can warm the console rubber slightly. Caution, don't overheat things. Water warm to the touch works okay. Then pry out the cover/ring or old compass. Be careful not to damage the console. The line up the new compass in the hole. There are notches in the hole and raised sections on the clear/white part of the compass so that it will only go in one way. The compass lubber line should be aligned with the console. It is a very tight fit and that is all that holds it in place. I have an Aeris Atmos AI, but the same compass is used. It fits well and in the 5 years I've had mine, no problems with it coming out. Even after I've replaced the broken compass.
Glenn G Thanks Daniel.Very helpful tips.
The compass in my Xr2 console simply pushed out from behind, and then the new one followed. It fits tight in the plastic/rubber/? housing and has been very secure. Hope this helps.
Glenn G Thanks Randall. That's just the advice I needed.
Does you have a clip mount which works for this compass? Not a wrist boot.
We do have the compass boot that clips to your high pressure hose. Check it out here
Is this compass suitable for South-East Asia and Australia?
Sorry, this is a zone 1 compass. We have a southern hemisphere compass available here
Will this fit Sherwood gauges?
This will most likely not fit you console correctly--check out this Genesis
Will this compass clip to a hose ?
LeisurePro S This compass module on it's own doesn't have a clip, it would have to be attached into the Atmos 1 or onto another piece that clips to a hose.
Does this compass fit the Aeris Atoms 2 Console? I need a replacement. If this deosn't fit can you obtain a replacement?
LeisurePro S No, sorry, this won't fit the Atmos 2. We don't sell the correct compass, the product you need is called the 'Atmos 2 compass assembly'.
Does the AERXR1C/ AerisXR1 have a slot for a compass on the back, and if so, will this compass fit it?
Glenn G Just bought this. Do I just use a screwdriver to remove the round plastic cover on the back of the Aeris XR-1 console and push the compass into the hole? What keeps it in place?
LeisurePro S Yes, there is a slot and this is the compass for it!
