Here we have a vintage original Freiberger Präzisionsmechanik map distance meter in brand new (new old stock – NOS) condition! The Freiberger ‘curvimeter’ map distance meter was manufactured in the former DDR. The device is made of hard plastic and it is presented in a grey vinyl pouch. This is not a rugged high-quality item but it does what it was made for perfectly. We have seen many other map distance meters but this is the only one with a reset button AND a lot of supported map scales: 1:30.000, 1:50.000, 1:100.000, 1:120.000, 1:200.000 and 1:600.000 presented on two sides of the device! It also features a ‘toothed’ copper map reading wheel which does not slip on the paper.
This is a very handy item to measure ‘shortest distances’ in historic rally events or on vintage road-trips. Analog (of-course) from a real paper map! This vintage Freiberger map distance meter will be a VERY HANDY tool for the avid rally navigator! “Enjoy the Ride!”
