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.
Don't always need your compass for navigation; this convenient hose mount compass module is your best choice. Allows diver to choose when navigation is required by using a durable rubber boot with threaded adapter that clamps quickly and easily to any high pressure hose. Boot has side scan notch for side-reading gun-sight accurate navigation.
The Side Scan 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 Side Scan Compass are actually molded completely through the bezel ring and literally cannot be rubbed off unlike silk screened graphics.
The Luminous Dial of the Side Scan 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 Side Scan 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 Compass Hose Mount Assembly for Oceanic VT Pro/VT3 and Aeris Atmos Elite/Elite T3 Wrist Computers:
I use this compass for scientific and recreational diving. I have the wrist compass (its not on my computer housing) and it's really easy to navigate and follow maps with this on my arm. I love it and feel naked if I don't use it, even at sites that I know really well. The wrist attachment fits well and is well constructed, and stays comfortable over my glove. The numbers are a great size - a lot of compasses have small fonts or awkward tick marks, but this one is really easy to read (and no, I don't need reading glasses). Its glow-in-the-dark function is useful for kelp forest diving, and the compass housing is well made and turns easily even when my hands are freezing and I have to change course.
I highly recommend this compass, especially for its very reasonable price!
