Comments from Customers
"The PAT tool works great. I only need to be near Polaris, and it tracks really well. Everyone else has to worry about drift, except for me."

"Just wanted to tell you what a great product the Polar Alignment Tool is! I am able to set up much faster than when I used a compass and bubble level to align the platform, and the alignment is much more precise than I was ever able to achieve before. I always had visible drift before, but now things just hang in the center of the field. To top it all off, this alignment method is independent of latitude, so I don't have to worry about tilting the platform a precise number of degrees to adjust for my location. I just shim the platform until the red dot is on Polaris and I'm done. Every platform owner should have one of these!"
