I wanted a cheap compass, and the thought of it including an altimeter was bonus. This way I didn't have to change settings on my GPS to see which way I was pointed, or what elevation I was at. I still like this little toy, BUT:
-the speedometer reads 1-2mph high
-the altimeter reads 60 to 100 feet low
-the voltmeter fluctuates 0.2 volts from a different gauge I have
-the compass seems accurate but only to 8 points (NNW will read either N or NW)
-the minutes on the clock are correct, but forget trying to keep the hours correct
-the sound icon is "on" but I've never heard anything from it, a red icon appears for overspeed

and I completely ignore the left third of it. I'm not driving a Jeep and would have bought this unit without the inclinometer if they made such a thing.

I'm always asking Siri my elevation, and it'd be nice to know the grades when I'm asking myself if something is wrong or is this goat trail just really, really steep?

Nice display on it, what brand?
