About Oceanic Compass Module

Many divers take compasses for granted, considering them just an accessory to an overall dive gauge console system. Trying to navigate with a poorly designed or improperly functioning compass can be one of diving's more frustrating events. The design team at Oceanic may have designed the best Liquid Filled Compass available today with a list of features as functional and convenient as every instrument that bears the Oceanic name.

The SideScan is actually a dual purpose compass. The convenient Side Scan Window allows Quick Reference of Large, Easy-to-Read Bearing Indicators on a Luminescent Display for Gun-Sight Accuracy. Or, for divers who prefer Relative Navigation, the Ratchet Bezel can be rotated easily even with thick neoprene gloves. The Bezel Numbers on top of the SideScan Compass are actually molded completely through the bezel ring and literally cannot be rubbed off unlike silk screened graphics.

The Luminous Dial of the Sidescan is designed with a Half Black / Half Luminous Graphic to make quick work of compass direction, especially in dim light. The dial rests on a Precision Jeweled Bearing and incorporates extremely Strong Magnets for super quick response and accuracy. While the SideScan module itself is very compact, the housing has a large vertical interior allowing viewing angles that would stop other compasses in their tracks. The Compass Bezel has compass headings in 30 degrees numbered increments and indicator marks for every 10 degrees. Bezel has twin heading indicators for alignment of compass course, and a lubber line across the compass face. Compass is covered by a 12 month limited warranty.

The Oceanic Compass Module is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Oceanic Compass Module: Easy To Use, Functional, Improves Diving Experience.

          Comments about Oceanic Compass Module:

          This is a great compass when it works. Easy to use and read underwater. Unfortunately after 4 years most of the internal fluid has leaked out rendering it useless despite being well cared for. I am buying another one because it fits my console and I like it when it works.

          Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
          CHARLIE K  Clean, clear design makes it easy to read at a glance. The large dial makes it easy to adjust and it snapped into my console easily.
          Armando d  Will this fit the Oceanic Veo 180 Dive Computer SWIV Double Gauge Combo?
          STEVE T  I don't honestly know. I had the open space on the back of my gauge cluster and this fit it perfectly.
          PRZEMYSLAW I  If I wanted to clip it to my BCD, what retractor would you recommend to hold this compass module securely?
          TOM G  I bought this item as a replacement. It fit into my existing gauge set nicely. Therefore I didn't buy anything to hold it. Sorry
