Brunton Nomad V2

    I purchased the V2 for $55.00 and it so far has been working well for me. The compass gives a very quick reading and is extremely accurate when I point it at the same direction of my Suunto MC2 by less than one degree. The thermometer is also useful, but is slow. The buttons are small, but do not go off in my pack. The clock is accurate and the backlight is useful in the dark.



      I really like this compass and have found it very accurate. The only downside is that you have to push the button for each reading. Very large display that is very easy to read and pinpoint your direction. A bubble level lets you know you are on plane for a accurate reading. Backlit display if you need it.

      This thing is a little large though, bigger than you would think and heavier than anticipated.


      Electronic vs liquid filled

        Seems like a good compass but I prefer liquid filled for immediate constant direction. I don't like having to constantly push a button to get my current heading. If this isn't an issue for you, you may be happy with this compass.

        Is this also an altimeter giving altitude readings?

        No, I am pretty sure this one is just the compass, I believe you are looking for the Brunton Nomad v2 PRO which also has the barometer.
