Hi there, I just wanted to send you a big thank you for such a quick delivery of the two roamers that I ordered off you on Sunday evening. I am currently working with the British Army and I received my order off you today. That was incredibly quick for an overseas delivery! I take part in Navigational competitions with the Army and I will be passing on your details to fellow competitors next weekend when I take part in my next event. Once again many thanks.
I will pass your email to the rest of the members of my field police unit. Many thanks.

I recieved my Roamer 6 thro the post no problems. It's the best Roamer I have employed. I don't use them for motorsport any more (Army Nav-Ex BAMA), but for Scouting Nav ex's using 1:25000 maps. To that end I'm running a large Night Ex with some 120 young people for my Scout District and I am suppling Maps and Roamers in the entry fee. (Planned to provide the Outdoor Shop's version
(£2.50 ea) However, now having recieved mine, I feel that these are incredibly inferior to the Basic Roamer. Could you offer me any discount for a qty order please? Many thanks for your time.

Phil... I'm sorry, but I'm now only going to buy the one Roamer - you sent me to your website, which was excellent by the way, this showed me the Basic Roamer 6 in much clearer detail and proves to me that it will do everything I want!
Thanks for all your help, If every company was as helpful as yours the world would be a much better place!!!

"Phil, I heard about your products through fellow Park Rangers working for the Lancashire Countryside Service, I used the Roamer 6 once and never looked back. For anyone new or experienced to walking, hiking, trekking etc thinking about buying a spangley new colour screen 3D lanscape Â£350 GPS system... DON'T BOTHER!

"Some time ago, the kids got hold of my Potis and I caught them playing with it. They had broken the lamp holder. That was the end of my 12-cars for a while as I had trouble finding a suitable replacement and a new Potis was out of the question. Then came a bit of luck. After seeing that this years Table Top Rally championship was being sponsored by The Basic Roamer Company I had a browse on their web site and found that the history section mentioned the designer of the Basic Roamer, Tony Reynolds. Ah-ha, may they know something about my Potis as well then. I emailed them about the bulb holder and was amazed to learn that they had two replacements sitting on the shelf gathering dust. I was offered them free of charge and postage. Needless to say, I am now back competing in the Hart 12-cars, the last of which was run on April 8th in

"A few of us in the team decided to enter the Microsoft Challenge event in Wales during June so I decided to buy a new mountain bike and make sure I give myself the best chance by investing in a lot of new gear, including a couple of Basic Roamers (one being for a colleague at work who is also in the team)"
Your supply of Roamer 6 will be used with Ordnance Survey to determine co-ordinate data for a database of facilities where recycled products can be used in a Borough Council. The data will later be added to GIS software. The Roamer's will make it possible to create GIS mapping data through a budget that would not allow for GPS equipment.

Hello, having seen your roamers recently on your web site I was very interested to make sure I get my hands on one. However, having just lost mine last night out competing, I'm in urgent need of obtaining a new one in time for a night rally this Saturday. Please can you advise my best course of action? Thanks in anticipation. Desparate from
