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.

The item delivered was not as advertised, smaller, inferior, compared to a Silva Romer this is not even similar, doesn't even have as image portrays the Silva logo, as such complaint has been made to the Silva company, do not buy this item !

This little clear plastic addition to any compass and map user is a complete little scales toolkit which will be invaluable to the walker, hiker and being made of clear plastic is easy to read, clean and fits snugly into map case or pocket or wallet. 110% Highly recommended..

Light and easy to use. Would recommend for use in training and instructing on map reading.
I carry it with me when I go hill walking

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 is an OK product a bit flimsy but it does the job, if however you are looking for a decent map romer, then go to [...], the one they sell is the best in the business, in my opinion!

Prompt delivery. Does exactly what it needs to do. Having had a map roamer for some years which has fallen apart from use, it was good to find somebody still sells them in this day of electronic navigation. Easy to use with 1:25000 maps.
