Many divers take compasses for granted, considering them just an accessory to an overall dive gauge console system. Trying to navigate with a poorly designed or improperly functioning compass can be one of diving’s more frustrating events. The design team at Oceanic may have designed the best compass available today with a list of features as functional and convenient as every instrument that bears the Oceanic name. The SideScan is actually a dual purpose compass. The convenient sidescan window allows quick reference of large, easy to read bearing indicators on a luminescent display. Or, for divers who prefer relative navigation, the ratchet bezel can be rotated easily even with thick neoprene gloves. The bezel numbers on top of the SideScan Compass are actually molded completely through the bezel ring and literally cannot be rubbed off unlike silk screened graphics.
The luminous dial of the Sidescan is designed with a half black / half luminous graphic to make quick work of compass direction, especially in dim light. The dial rests on a precision jeweled bearing and incorporates extremely strong magnets for super quick response and accuracy. While the SideScan module itself is very compact, the housing has a large vertical interior allowing viewing angles that would stop other compasses in their tracks.
A large, luminous display face enhances the readability of the Compass module that absorbs light seven times faster and brighter than other glow-in-the-dark materials.
