The Basic Roamer was designed many years ago by the Gentleman Tony Reynolds. He realised the need for a device that was both compact and at the same time remained accurate within it's working environment. His original design passed through many stages of development, he listened and gathered enthusiastic information from his friends and indeed many competitors that had been introduced to his then, latest version. Even a laminated model was introduced but this proved inconsistent and suffered from an inherent twist. So, after wearing out yet another drawing board Tony persevered until this, the MkV was born. Development regarding the Roamer 6 followed similar lines once a 1:25 000 market had been realised. And of course, a clever play on the name ensured that copyright's remain unaffected!
