Kompis / GPS - Compass


KOMPIS - a combination of a compass and a GPS unit. The top OLED surface displays a text name or an icon. A color ring around it indicates the direction of the chosen place (this way you can pick your own way how to get to the desired destination - no map is displayed). The color ring changes from blue - far from object, to red - close (cold/hot). Destinations can be picked with a dial wheel on top of the object. A new place can be bookmarked by connecting it to a computer and using special software, or with a knob on
the side. It can be recharged by connecting it to a computer or by rotating the dial on the back side (emergency charge).
