Comments about Magnifier:

I was pleased with this product. It makes reading so much easier. No moving your hand position in order to see the entire page. If you have to move it, it is minimal and you do not lose your place. When eyeglasses are not needed, this is a good aid in reading small print. The plastic gets hazy at times but bearable.

Comments about Magnifier:

I've had a 'map reader' that was made of hard plastic, which was hard to place inside of maps and had to be stored elsewhere in my car. This one is very pliable and bends perfectly to keep inside of maps or the Road Atlas. A Big plus! Only one problem: it can scratch very easily, so be careful not to place hard objects on top of it!
