I'm thinking about buying one.  What say y'all?

I love mine. Just wish they were a little less expensive.

Also wish the batteries lasted a little longer!

What are the batteries for?  From what I understand, solar lights up the compass at night.  That, plus, I'm only using it for race committee work, so I'd never be using it at night anyway.

Love mine. Still great after 15 years. I don't leave shore without it.

Anyone have any thoughts on how it compares to the Plastimo?  I know ritchie has one -- but its fairly bad (no dampening, etc.).  Are there other ones out there I should look at?
