Practical, featuring easy-to-read large crisp numbers, energy efficient(**), it is well suited to all outdoors activities such as backpacking, hiking, trekking and mountaineering.

Choose from multiple realistic views, including dynamic 3D shadows, and this elegant tool will behave just like an oil-bath mechanical compass equipped with a locking outer-ring…

(*) In daytime mode, move the phone and it's 3D shadows move with you.
(**) Designed to work without GPS and in Airplane Mode. Network connectivity required to change Magnetic Field Declination automatically, but that information can also be changed in the field by hand or keyboard input.
