Diving compass

An underwater compass is a compact navigation tool which can either be worn on the wrist like a watch or integrated in a gauge consol, or attached to the BCD with a special retractor. Some dive computers are equipped with in-built digital compasses. No matter which model you prefer,
a common liquid filled magnetic compass should fit these requirements:

  • Phosphorescent card
  • Top and side reading
  • Easy to read bearing indicators
  • High tilt potential
  • Rotating bezel with luminescent markings

To get advice ask the instructors, or share your opinions with other divers in the diving equipment forum.
