About Oceanic SWIV 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 Sde 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 SWIV Compass Module is commonly used for All Diving Applications, Recreation, Warm Water and more. The Oceanic SWIV Compass Module is most used by customers who consider themselves to be a Recreational Diver among others. The Oceanic SWIV Compass Module is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Oceanic SWIV Compass Module: Easy To Operate, Easy To Read, Easy To Use, Functional, Solid Construction.

Perfect, fits the bill exactly!

I needed a compass module on my councel and this was the exact pop-in module for that package. It works great, points North, sets courses, etc. [...]

    Great, simple compass. Bought this to replace an identical one that had somehow formed an air bubble and didin't function properly any more. But it was more than 10 years old.

            Comments about Oceanic SWIV Compass Module:

            Used it for my AOW certification and it worked. The one thing I don't like about is the lobed/wide south pole marker. I prefer a needle because it gives a more accurate visual cue. Of course, you can just look at the degrees and get the same thing.

            That's my only complaint, overall it works well.

            O, and it does fit perfectly in the Oceanic SWIV console, as advertised... took me a few tries to get it in straight though.

            moonrock w  when installing this compass in the Oceanic SWIV console what direction is the red line supposed to face ?
            JAMES M  That's your lubber line, when you're using the compass, you want it to be parallel to the direction you're moving. So, for some folks, it may align straight up and down in the mount and for some it could be turned slightly, it all depends on how you physically hold the compass when you're using it for navigating.
