Tips on using
Don Barrow Light Map Magnifiers

  • Always switch on at least 20 Minutes before use, this allows the lens to warm up and reduce any condensation that may occur
  • Don't be tempted to cut a hole in the side of the Magnifier body, this let's the light shine out directly into your drivers face
  • Plotting Map References, looking through the Lens, set up the Romer on the exact spot, affix your eyes through the Romer onto the Map
  • Tilt the Map Magnifier and with your eyes still affixed on the exact spot, mark your Map, this needs practise to perfect
  • Always make sure you have the correct Baseplates to suit the Maps you are using
  • Remove the protective film from all new Baseplates
  • Use the divisions on the Reflector Scale to measure short distances - see below
  • 0.05 or 1/20th of a Mile on 1:25,000 Maps
  • 0.1 or 1/10th of a Mile on 1:50,000 Maps
  • 0.3 or 3/10ths of a Klm on 1:100,000 IGN Maps
  • 0.5 or 5/10ths of a kLm on 1:150,000 Maps
  • 0.6 or 6/10ths of a Klm on 1:200,000 Maps
  • Replace the flex after every 20 Rallies, the inner wires tend to snap inside the rubber grommet
  • Spare Bulbs are always essential, they never blow when you carry spares !

Moulded in black PVC with a holding handle to locate in position on the map. All models have a milled internal groove to accept any of the Don Barrow Graticule Baseplates. The 'standard B01 supply' 1:50,000 Baseplate simply clips into the lower groove, to provide a printed Graticule which enables you to either plot Map References or measure distances on the map, see below for all other Scales and LED Options. All Pro-models are fitted with a Superior Quality 113mm dia x 1.5 +/- magnification (50+/-% larger) Crystal Glass Plano Convex Lens. The various models have different switching and bulb fitments.

For replacement Bulb, you now have a choice of either 5 Watt Soft White LED or 5 Watt Red LED Bulb or the universally available cheap to replace 5 Watt Festoon Bulb, all available from my DB Spares page.

When making comparisons with other so-called Map Magnifiers, always check whether they are fitted with either inferior Window Glass lens (giving a Green Tint - distorting the true colours), or Acrylic or Plastic lenses which are more susceptable to marking with scratches. And furthermore, what if a bulb blows, can you replace it quickly and cheaply when competing on an event ?

BE SENSIBLE ! make sure you know what you are buying ! Endeavour to look professional with all the right equipment. Designed, developed and tested over the years with devastating results.
