Questions & Answers

What changes have been made since 2016 to the twist mechanism?

THEY ARE EASY TO USE AND I have never had any problems with them. If you want to learn how to use a Portland plotter, I recommend watching How to Use a Portland Plotter by Mike Whitehouse on YouTube. I find him to be a great teacher.

Selected User Reviews For Lindemann Original Portland Plotter

Plotter of excellent quality
5/5

My favorite thing about this plotter is how easy it is to use. The overall length of the course line is roughly 14" thus, it is easy to plot longer There are clear and easy-to-read numbers on this product, which is solid and feels good in the hand. Even so, the rotating dial of the plotter is a little stiff, since the plotter is fairly new, but it's easy enough to turn and has little plastic knobs that act as handles for To protect it in my navigation kit bag, I would love for it to come with a vinyl or plastic sleeve. Aside from that, I'm in love with this!.

It's impossible to ignore the power of Portland plotters As per standard practice, this product was provided by you
4/5

It's impossible to ignore the power of Portland plotters As per standard practice, this product was provided by you. The variance scale is built into the plotter. The packaging was made from Styrofoam popcorn, and I'm probably going to sail past a floating island of this same type of packaging one day. Deducting a star, however. This can be done better by you.

Despite its ease, the compass rose doesn't move very fast at all
3/5

The overall picture. I like it, but I think the rotating compass rose needs friction to remain attached to the stand. It's a bummer that this issue wasn't dealt with better, but I am sure there's a fix or workaround.

I've found my new favorite thing This tool is for plotting
5/5

I am in love with this tool. In spite of its small size, the parallel rule is easier to use and more accurate than going across the chart to a (difficult to read) compass rose, or struggling to keep a roller plotter from skipping and sliding around the chart. I highly recommend it.

Easily and quickly solve navigation problems with this accurate and user-friendly method
5/5

With this plotter, I am now in love. It allows the user to set accurate course settings based on a small number of variations. Now you can use rulers without slipping and skipping.

Using the old-fashioned navigation tool will save you space
4/5

A navigation tool that is easy to use, but the twist mechanism is too complicated. This is a very reliable plotter that I've used for nearly 1000 nautical miles. However, it's not quite as precise as our older plotter, except for that it's going to ensure that our GPS isn't going haywire. The GPS may stop working or we may lose signal. A course plotting tool like this one allows for accurate course plotting while using less space than a.

It's a good plotter, but beware of the vendor who ships it It is a very good plotter and I like it, but it was shipped via UPS and UPS (as has happened MANY times in the past) is a PAIN to deal with when shipping across the US/Canada border
3/5

People should be informed ahead of time that UPS shipping is an option, so they can decide whether to take the pain.

I have used many devices in my life, but this is by far the best
5/5

A replacement order was placed because one of the previous ones was damaged My charting tool of choice is this one. I've tried others, but this is my favorite. Graphs can be produced very quickly with this easy and accurate tool. It was necessary for me to buy a new one after the old one broke.
