Overview

The NiteStar is a Distance Measuring Instrument (DMI) designed to accurately record distances and survey coordinates as you drive. The device records distances for logging points along a given route, and gives you linear distances with a high degree of accuracy. It is easy to use and displays measurements right in your vehicle.
