F'n AWESOME.Starlane Athon GPS R Lap Timer - Tachometer - Shift Light - Track Mapping

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!!

I saw one a couple weekends ago at Nelson and it is definitely the hot shit. You can play a "video" comparison of two laps you did, a slow one and a fast one, overlaying the lines in different colors and see where you picked up the speed. It is truly amazing. I am going to budget for one next year... or maybe use 2 fewer sets of tires this year... I'll keep ya in mind when I need it Dan.

What kind of warranty do these things have on them? I'd hate to spend this much money and have it crap out in a year.

Do your sponsor shopping off the track, do you really need to be making phone calls ON the track?




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

What exactly does the data acquisition system for it add?
There is nothing in the description.
Looks like the Athon covers most of what you'd want? DA add TPS, braking etc? or what? Has anyone seen that setup?
btw.. Is fred the importer or just a dealer selling them?

Without a doubt one of the best lap timers out there, no beacon needed and gobs of useful info. Tested one at blackhawk last year and used one at VIR this year. Awesome, it's well worth the money if you actually use it (and that means all the functionality not just the lap timing part).

Was sitting with fred from yoyodyne at VIR and using the software to compare two bikes at the same time and it was really cool for the riders to see what each other were doing in different parts of the track. It really opened up discussion between the two riders and they helped each other improve their lap times.

Dear re-cycle_parts-n-accessories,

Does the bluetooth work?
What's the warranty status?

(I have heard about 5 to 10 people on the boards who have these and the bluetooth didn't work.. if there was no support - I'd basically bought a brick.



- gconsier





Dear gconsier,

We are not able to test the connection. Our computers do not have bluetooth. Only bid if you're comfortable, it may be worth letting this one go.
