Update: July 1, 2016. After two years this is still mounted on my dash and working perfectly. Over time it did drop down slightly and I had to loosen the side screws and raise it back level. No biggie. There has been no oil leakage or evaporation. Still recommended.
I had no trouble at all calibrating this, I got it on the first try. The compass will come oriented correctly if you are standing on open ground away from metal. Of course that will change when you get in the car.

You see, we are usually anchored out at night, and knowing where the boat is pointing at night tells me if the winds have changed -which may put us in a dangerous position as far as wind driven waves, with the anchor dragging and allowing the boat to be washed ashore, etc. Something that will disturb your sleep a bit for sure. So, I usually check the boat heading 2-3 times at night, by simply reading the compass and knowing where that points us.
It has a small LED light inside that we use along with a little push-button switch wired to the vessels 12vdc power buss. Oh, and it has a compensator magnet too, for zeroing out any metal near...
