About Oceanic SWIV Compass Module, Southern Hemisphere

If you're going "Down Under" or somewhere south of the equator, then you want this compass in your dive bag. Your Northern Hemisphere Compass won't give you proper heading below the equator, it will read backwards! Oceanic's Southern Hemisphere Compass will solve that problem.

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.

      Comments about Oceanic SWIV Compass Module, Southern Hemisphere:

      The liquid left my last compass somehow and this was a direct replacement that I was able to get quickly and at a great price from Leisure Pro.
      Installation was a "snap".
