Thanks for all the input. Without it I probably would have forgone the compass, silly me. The Fujis'' and the Bushnells both sound good. The Fujis'' were recommended by West Marine. Say, I''m probably opening a can of worms here,, but just how good is the West Marine Advisor, in you folks experienced opinion. Is the whole thing just a justification for their products, or is their info the straight skinny ?
