User Review: Brunton 8096 GPS Eclipse
Price Paid: $20
Excellent compass to use with map and GPS. Adjustable declination and large baseplate make for easy use in conjunction with a map. Brunton's 'Circle on circle' north orienting system is fast and easy to use. Designed to be used with a GPS in order to plot position (either UTM or lat/long) on a topo map, the 8096 is excellent for this purpose. One of the few compasses with a 1:24,000 scale for use with standard U.S. topos.
Negatives are that it does not possess sights for precision sighting to landmarks, and the 8096's scale/degree measurements are not engraved into the baseplate but only printed on, these wear off with use.
