OH now I see your compass, I'm not sure why it wasn't showing before. Yes, this type of compass can be confusing at times, especially when trying to navigate on the proper side of markers on the lake. I think it's called a 'direct reading' compass.

I prefer one like the image I put in the previous post. Ritchie calls this type their 'combi dial' type of compass.

I think if I had that type of compass, I'd swap it out for one that was more like the unit I displayed. It's trying to show you your heading as the boat is heading, you can't look at it when heading north and say 'east is to my left'. Wow, that will screw you up big time!
Don't listen to me, obviously I don't understand what I'm talking about!
