    They used to be a lot cheaper.  I actually picked one up surplus in the '60's, which was stolen by a housemate to get laid.
    I have a plastic one now.  I have farm property and mapped the roads back before aerial photos were easily available.
    Best, doug

    Not as bad as me. I bought more than one! I am a sucker for gadgets like this. ;)

    I have been thinking about getting a Brunton transit, but I just can't justify the price. There are some excellent lessons on basic land navigation at this website. Part 3 has some really useful information about finding distances and making an accurate map with only a compass. Some very compact tables are included to aid in the calculations.
