This compass worked fine, and I originally thought it was an excellent product for the price I paid. It took me a while to notice the error, it even made me question myself. East and West on this compass are reversed in the wrong position, this feels like a fairly fundamental flaw to me! It’s a shame because other than this it’s a great product. I thought it might be printing error on my compass, but looking at the product picture online it’s wrong there too!
Thanks for taking the time to send your feedback.
Just to clarify to you, we have not switched the W and E on the compass. We actually use the scale "Declination Scale" where reads this "W" and "E"
It's used when in some places in the world, you have some degrees different between Geographic North and Magnetic North.
You can find a lot of information online to know if you need to use it depending on where you are.
Hope this makes it a bit clearer for you now. But do not hesitate to contact us again if you still have any doubts with this Compass.
