Unlike a classic compass that uses the earth’s magnetic field for directions, the Quest Compass from Marlin’s Genuine Accessories uses satellite technology to display the direction you’re heading. Because it uses a satellite, it needs to be hooked up to a power source like your motorcycle battery, small 9-volt external battery pack, or USB connector.
The Quest Compass works with other “toys” too, like a boat, RV, ATV, and of course your car, which will help you justify the $90 to $140 price tag depending on the mount and finish you want.
