One place you might want to check is the Boy Scout office. They used to sell
a very reliable Braille Compass.

I have one and have had it for a good 20 years.

Only complaint is that it is a bit slow to hone in on the direction but you
can easily get used to it.

It has a lock which will allow you to feel and fumble with the reading
without moving the direction indicator.

Subject: [BlindHandyMan] Reliable Compass



Hi all,

I realize this topic has been discussed before and I did look in the
archives before sending this message but found the number of messages on the
topic to be a bit daunting. I'd simply like to know if anyone is using a
Braille compass that works reliably for them. I tried the Columbus Talking
Digital Compass and I found it to be absolutely worthless. In a majority of
the times I tried to use the compass it gave me readings that were
completely wrong. I returned it yesterday. I've seen advertisements for a
couple of Braille compasses but I'd like to know if they're any better than
the talking compasses before I go through all the trouble of ordering one
only to return it a few days later. Any advice on a reliable Braille
compass will be greatly appreciated.

Take care,

Ed Przybylek
