TRAC Fishing Barometer
DON"T WAISTE YOUR $$$
I purchased this little device and should have read the other reviews before hand. I set the unit just like it said and just so happens a storm rolls through the camp site and it barely moved. I have had it on numerous fishing trips and very little movement. Basically the truth " it's junk". I paid $16.oo for something that I should've known better.

Compared it to NOAA weather website to see if it is accurate and it was pretty close. However, It was difficult to set to the NOAA website. Seemed to stick and then jump around when attempting to calibrate.

When I see reviews that are only 5 stars or 1 star that means there is poor quality control. Mine seems to work well. This unit does have problems. It's a little trickey to set and the needle does jump a bit. However, one must remember this barometer is not meant to give hair splitting accuracy. It is meant to show barometric trends. Also, remember the price. What do you think your getting for $15.00? I set mine without too much trouble and checked it every day for a week. It was as accurate as I could expect. It did show trends well as the range of 29 to 31 is more narrow than a regular barometer.

After calibrating it, it does work well as a barometer. I found that a good bump will knock it out of calibration though. The fishing activity part is pretty accurate. I wouldn't pay much more for it.
