Thanks, yes, always used height of eye correction but long ago forgot the term "dip" if I even retained it past the classroom door. If the prof said we wouldn't be tested on it, zap! to the recycle bin it went. We were given a plastic-laminated height of eye correction table that stayed in the navigation kit forever and I'm sure I still have it somewhere at home.
I'd still like to know exactly what German word the device's abbreviation stands for, Ktm. = K--------tauschenmesser, tauschen = dip and messer = meter. So what's the K?
