Bicyclists looking for a compact, convenient and simple bicycle gadget to help them with directions should look into the Haize compass designed by Onomo. The compass uses colors and light placements to stir riders in the right direction, unlike a traditional GPS that uses maps to showcase routes that can be distracting to drives. This is an ideal solution to simplifying directions while still allowing the rider to get where they need to go.

The Haize device looks like a standard compass in shape with the main difference being the lack of hands and text. Instead the gadget features a black surface complete with a central green dot and LED lights that wrap around the perimeter. The dots light up according to the rider's direction. The device runs on rechargeable battery and can easily be clipped to a bike's handles.
