Does What it Should Do, At a Great Price
on 19 April 2012
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.
