Suunto MC-2G Navigator Compass Suunto MC-2G Navigator Compass on sale on 08/22/2008 14:24:21 MDT Print View

Hi All,
I was wondering if these two compasses are the same. EMS support said its the same but I wanted to post in this forum to confirm.
REI:

EMS:

Thanks for your assistance !

No. They are not. EMS is selling an MC-2. The one from REI is part number MC-2G (make note of the G). G is for Global. The ones without are designed to work in a specific zone. The difference was explained on Suunto's website when I was looking to get this a few months ago. I still am, but without the rush, I'm waiting to catch it on clearance sale or find one used. Until then, my old $5 Silva still gets me around.

They're slightly different.

The REI one is the MC-2G which has a global needle and superior performance over the EMS one which is the MC-2D.

MC-2D

MC-2G

MC-2D versus MC-2G on 08/22/2008 15:16:15 MDT Print View

Chris and Christopher,
Thanks for your information. I posted my question when I was not able to find information on the suunto site. I went back to the site for a second look and see what you guys are talking about.
I want the 2G. Do you guys know if it comes with metric or the non metric scales ?
I would prefer the metric because that's the system in use in india.

Looks like it's in miles.
