It's a Navigator's thing...


RoamerTime+ is an advanced although easy to use unit for Road, Regularity and Stage rally Navigators/Co-drivers incorporating many major features:

  • Operation via internal battery or vehicle 12v system, with all information being retained, including time of day, distances and all paused and running stopwatches, when the unit is powered off
  • Adjustable display brightness, simple distance calibration and the ability to easily set the time of day to any single second
  • A demonstration mode, where the unit can simulate travelling at a constant speed allowing practice use without being in a vehicle
  • A remote control unit that allows operation of the most common functions without having to touch the unit
  • An external "splitter" box that simplifies installation in a vehicle. Supports all common distance sensors including electronic speedometers
  • A quick release mechanism to an easily mounted bracket allowing adjustable fitting in all types of vehicles. This also means that the unit does not have to be stored in the vehicle after use, but safely in your kit bag if preferred.
  • Can be used in a variety of situations, table top events to bedside clock. Your choice!
