PRECISIÓN MÁS QUE EXACTA.

LA BRÚJULA DE PULGAR IZQUIERDO PARA CARRERAS DE ORIENTACIÓN RACER 500 ES UN MARAVILLOSO PRODUCTO RELACIÓN CALIDAD/PRECIO, LA HE ESTADO PROBANDO DESDE HACE 2 SEMANAS A NIVEL DE ENTRENAMIENTO, SU AGUJA ES MUY RÁPIDA, PRECISA Y MUY ESTABLE, SE SUJETA MUY BIEN A LA HORA DE ATACAR LOS PUNTOS A SEGUIR GRACIA A SU PESTAÑA PLASTICA TRASPARENTE ( Al Igual Que Toda Su Base Y Cuerpo, Excepto El Limbo Que Es De Color Negro Y Naranja ) AL LADO DE TU DEDO PULGAR PARA UN SEGUIMIENTO DE RUTA PERFECTO EN TU MAPA, SE HECHA DE MENOS LOS COLORES EN EL LIMBO GIRATORIO PERO ESTO SE PUEDE MEJORAR A FUTUROS MODELOS, EL CUERPO TAMBIÉN PODRÍA SER MÁS DELGADO PERO COMO HE DICHO SON DETALLES A MEJORAR EN PRÓXIMAS ENTREGAS DE ESTA EXELENTE BRÚJULA.

Tiene buen aspecto pero no sirve para nada

La brújula tiene buen aspecto y buenos acabados pero la aguja muchas veces se atasca y deja de marcar el norte, es imposible fiarse de ella y menos durante una carrera, no la recomiendo.

Buenas tardes Raul

Lamento que no estés satisfecho con la experiencia de esta brújula.
Comentarte que personalmente esta brújula es la que utilizo yo en mis carreras y entrenamientos ,marca bien y es muy estable. 

ESta brújula, no debería tener ningún problema a la hora de marcar el norte magnético. En ocasiones este problema puede provenir del uso de la brújula cerca de un campo magnético. Te invito a comprobar que cuando utilices la brújula está alejada de cualquier fuente magnética (teléfono móvil, llaves...). Si sigue marcando erróneamente puede que tenga algún defecto, en ese caso te invito a tu tienda Decathlon más cercana para poder hacer un cambio de producto o un reembolso del importe e intercambiar lo sucedido.

Sentimos las molestias que hayamos podido ocasionarte.

Muy estable

He competido con ella en 6 pruebas de orientación y tiene una gran estabilidad. El limbo se mueve muy fácilmente para poder marcar el rumbo rápidamente. Y la goma se ajusta muy bien al pulgar.

Cómoda y adaptable a portamapas

Navega bastante bien pero en movimiento le cuesta un poco llegar al rumbo marcado.

stable, réactive, mais pas trop. Rapport qualité prix imbattable. A recommander

Boussole de pouce très...

Boussole de pouce très abordable. Néanmoins sur la mienne, l'aimant a été collé légèrement de travers sous l'aiguille, entraînant un léger décalage entre le nord magnétique et le nord indiqué par la boussole. Peut-être faire plus attention lors du processus d'assemblage ? Elle mériterait alors 5 étoiles.

Why use a compass on the thumb?

There are a number of advantages to thumb carrying as soon as you start running while reading your map and compass. It is easy to read the map and compass simultaneously, since the compass is always in contact with the map. In addition, you can avoid the risk of getting snagged on a branch you face with a traditional cord and, if you fall, carrying a thumb compass means you can keep both hands free!

Rapid and stable needle:

A stable needle will allow you to read your compass while running and thus stay on course! This stability is due to the specific construction of the 'pivoting' needle. In addition, a transparent stability disc reduces the unwanted vibrations of the needle, thus making it easy to read while running. Lastly, the powerful magnet you can see under the needle enables a rapid reaction time.

Left or right thumb?

Learn to run while reading the map. Is the hand you naturally use to hold the map that in which you must hold the compass? Our advice? In general, right-handers prefer a LEFT-thumb compass and left-handers prefer a RIGHT-thumb compass; they can thus keep their stronger hand free to move branches aside, keep their balance or carry an electronic pointer to validate the control points. RIGHT-thumb compass: 8552897

Graduations: learn to do mental calculations!

The arrow at the top of the compass can help you find your position more quickly and easily on the map. The arrow is also graduated (3 cm), so you can quickly gauge the distances you will need to travel. "So, 2 cm on the map, at a scale of 1:15,000, means 30,000 cm, so 300 m! You need to be good at doing sums in your head!"

Oil bath - yes or no?

Rest assured: all Geonaute compasses are filled with viscous oil to ensure optimal performance.

Balancing: can i use my compass all over the world?

This compass is balanced for use in the northern hemisphere. Near the equator, or in the southern hemisphere, our compass will continue to indicate north, but its stability will be affected.

Our tips to ensure your compass lasts.

Keep your compass in a place that is neither hot nor cold. Avoid excessively high or low temperatures and changes in pressure: high altitudes in the mountains or transport in the hold of an airplane.

Imported

Storage instructions

Your compass comes with a little, soft pouch to protect it from any impacts or scratches during transport.
