DescriptionThe TrekGuide Digital Compass (Yellow) from Celestron provides degrees, a north pointing arrow and cardinal point readings. The compass has a range of 0° To 359° with 1-16 graphical pointers. There is even a magnetic declination angle adjustable for regions with magnetic variation. The built-in altimeter measures the altitude in either meters or feet; your choice. The Barometer measures the (air) pressure and sea level in mbar/hpPa, mmHG or inHG; again your choice. There are sunny, slightly cloudy, cloudy and rainy icons for the weather forecast. Current time and date, an alarm clock, a built in thermometer with either Celsius or Fahrenheit scales, a backlight, and a bubble level make this compass a multi-purpose tool that you won't want to be without on the hiking trail or hunting. It comes with a lanyard and 2 included CR2032 lithium batteries.

    Low Cost Hiker's Instrument

    By Don P

    from San Ramon CA

    Comments about Celestron TrekGuide Digital Compass (Yellow):

    For $[$], this is a nice lightweight, hang around your neck instrument that does more than your smartphone. It's an altimeter with a maximum reading memory; a magnetic compass; a barometer with rudimentary weather predictor; a thermometer; and an alarm clock with calendar, and an easy to use LCD display with night lighting. Runs (probably forever) on a couple2032 coin batteries. Would make a good stocking stuffer!

    I bought it for determining the N direction for my night photography. Easy to use, but not easy to installing or changing battery.

      Comments about Celestron TrekGuide Digital Compass (Yellow):

      This device is wildly inaccurate on altitude and barometric pressure. I did not trust the readings at all when on my recent hiking trip other than possibly the compass, but even then the readings were not precise on multiple readings compared to an aligned topo map. If accuracy and reliability is what you need then spend the money to get a better product.

          Comments about Celestron TrekGuide Digital Compass (Yellow):

          Sharp looking, easy to understand how to use, and compact size is great for when hiking. Could NOT find sufficient instructions with it or online to set up some of the initial settings such as how to find my current altitude or barometric pressure. Not sure how to hook up the lanyard either with the snap device provided (with no instructions either). The little guide said to look online, but the online version had nothing more than it did. Will take on my next trip and see just how accurate the compass is as well as the altimeter.
