Product Description

Designed for map measuring and trip planning. Accurately plots and obtains 6 and 8 figure grid references. Accurately measures travel distances. Roamers on compasses are less accurate and often difficult to use outdoors, especially in poor weather conditions. The Silva Map Romer removes these inaccuracies, accurately measuring 6 figure grid references on 1:50000 maps and 8 figure grid references on 1:25000 maps thus improving your safety in the hills and mountains. Accurately plot and obtain 6 figure grid references on 1:50000 scale maps. Accurately plot and obtain 6 & 8 figure grid references on 1:25000 scale maps. Ruler edges are marked in actual map distance - no fussy calculations required, easy and precise. Great to use as a teaching aid for D of E etc. Eliminates the common error of mistaking the first tenth of a grid square as 1 instead of 0.

As expected with a product from Silva, this item does exactly what it should do very well.If you are reading this review, I assume that you will know what this item does and how to use it.Basically, it is a see-through plastic card that is placed over a map and is used to measure distances & plot 6 figure grid references. There are various scales on the card : kilometres, miles & metres for 1/50 0000 scale maps. Kilometres, miles, metres, & yards for 1/25 000 scale maps.Inch, millimetre & centimetre measuring scales.Miles to kilometre conversion scales & formulas. Grid reference measuring squares for 1/25 000, 1/50 000 & 1/63 360 scale maps.Although there are other ways of working out all the above measurements, this card keeps them all together in one place in a handy sized, easy to read, waterproof and hard wearing card. I expect to be using this card frequently & would expect it to last a long time, this is an invaluable tool for all outdoor enthusiasts, at a very good price.

This was brought as a successor for an old Garford Romer which had snapped!! The Silva Romer is much more user friendly due to the scales being marked on clear plastic.

This item is exactly as described. A very useful thing to have. My only concern would be about price, as it is simply a small slip of plastic.
