Latest News: Forums Cruising Compass Recommendation Reply To: Compass Recommendation


Dont know what experiences anyone else has had with Tacktick but I bought their Micro compass a while back for cat racing. Used it a small amount, it then lay idle for a few years until I bought my first wayfarer. Decided to start using it again but totally struggled to get any degree of charge into it despite leaving in bright sunlight for long periods such that it barely worked even on sunny days. Its now totally given up the ghost so I too am looking for a compass. Perhaps its because I didn’t use it for a while or maybe these things just have a finite life. Either way I’m definitely not a fan of items that have a built in bespoke battery – I think I read somewhere that the unit isn’t serviceable. Whatever I replace it with has to be something that can be relied upon 100% when cruising.
