Nitestar DMI

The Nitestar 50 & 60 are Distance Measuring Instruments (DMI) that accurately record distances and survey coordinates as you drive. Distances are used for logging points along a given route.  The Nitestar DMI’s are highly accurate.  They can be used in conjunction with a speed sensor device and are especially useful when used with an array of other data collecting and distance measuring tools. The Nitestar Distance Measuring Instrument is perfect for surveying and mapping data while also capable of understanding many distance distinctions.


  • Measurements are displayed in real-time
  • Displays distance intervals between points of interest
  • Extensive internal memory for data storage and export
  • Optional SDM software allows for easy organization for viewing and reporting collected data.
  • Inventory data and coordinates are stored in a single file
  • Customizable key definitions for user or application
  • Easy to install and use
