Hi friend,
That's a Ritchie XP-99W (white) kayaker - the bungee tie-down base is a separate part.
I've had good luck with Hodges marine for a couple of Ritchie purchases

The XP-99 has a nice big display, easy to read with old/tired eyes.
Of course Ritchie is the last word in marine compasses.

I have been through too many Suunto compasses, both chart, deck, and surveying - they all eventually leak-in air. Here's a tandem cockpit I set up for my daughter in the T160 10 years ago.

I've gone to Silva for my chart compass
(I also have Steiner Navigator glasses with built-in compass display)

Thanks, I will start my search, love the idea, as I am currently trying to navigate with my phone without success during the bright sunlight time.
