800-835-3278), known for heavy involvement in the camping field, sells some super low-cost compasses, too.

Precision doesn't solve all the problems inherent with old-school mag compasses because the magnet drive is subject to lead and lag effect, but Precision maintains that the beauty of vertical card design is the absence of pendulosity.
The silicone damping design seems to eliminate the classic bobbling motion of the floating compass card that's inherent with other wet compasses. Our experience flying with and calibrating this compass has been favorable.
