Holy Shit this thing is F'n awesome! All GPS so no timer becon...no missed laps...
I just got one and it's awesome!! I was able to study my laps at road america on saturday practice...I was able to see what I was doing line-wise, speed wise, etc....and I was able to cut off a couple seconds off my time...would of put me 12th on the FX grid a few weeks ago!
It's a very cool useful tool!!
GPS RECEIVER AND ANTENNA INTEGRATED INSIDE THE INSTRUMENT:
ATHON's shock tolerant ABS body holds both the GPS receiver and the antenna, such a solution makes it really handy in it's semplicity and doesn't require the installation of any additional part on the vehicle.
YOU CAN SAY FAREWELL TO THE UNCOMFORTABLE INFRARED TRANSMITTERS ON THE PIT WALL:
the GPS system usage for the laptimer makes ATHON totally autonomous without the need of any reference on the side of the track like the transmitters used by the old generation systems based on the infrared technology. Everything becomes easier, without the bother of positioning the transmitter with the uncomfortable battery to be charged and the risk of forgetting it or to see it stolen.
FINISH LINE AND 3 INTERMEDIATES MANAGEMENT:
by simply pressing one key it's possible to set, during the first lap, the coordinates of 4 lines (finish line + 3 optional intermediates), every time a line is passed ATHON displays the time and stores its value, so it's possible to quickly verify the performance also in parts of the track far from the main straight, something that would be expensive and uncomfortable with any other kind of chrono.
it's good stuff
If you want one let me know, I can hook you guys up if any of you want one!!
