My mistake then. What you are saying you feed the GPS from the repeater. Power from battery to Repeater and power and data (4 cables) to the Garmin. Right?

When are you making next batch order?. I am not in a hurry.

About connectors, i want to connect several devices and if possible protect them with a fuse. Your dad had a good idea. By the way is this water proof. It is raining a lot in Marocco causing faults in electrical devices.



Is your dad joining the Africa Race 2010???

Yes, exactly like that! Although, it is possible to attach the power supply cable directly to the connector on the side of the Garmin cable. This means you can power the Garmin without having the repeater attached.

I can't exactly say when, but I currently have 2 cases left over. They should be gone in no time, so once they're gone, I'll reorder a new batch!

It depends on which one you get. For example, this one is specificly for yachts and boats, so it's assumable that they ought to be waterproof . You can see around the transparent cover there's a rubber seal.

Unfortunately no We had planned on going together as a father/son team since I'll be turning 18 next month, but as privateers without sponsors this would mean about 30000 in fees ... Hopefully in the near future!
Were you planning in taking part in an event? (BTW: Where are you from? It's be best if you listed your location in your profile!)

First order out + New Pics

Alrighty, I have been able to complete my first 5 orders and ship them out, too (1xTM + 1xRepeater to UK and NL, 1xRepeater to USA) !
I can hardly believe it
I hope the guys'll be happy with their stuff and give back some positive feedback!

Also, I took the liberty to take some photos before they were sent out.

All 5 devices together:


Silver TM:


Silver CR (a.k.a. compass repeater):


Orange TM:


Orange CR:


This is what your setup could look like!


In the dark (lights are a little brighter on the pic):


Flash turned on to "simulate" strong sunlight. See how strong the contrast still is (remember, the backlight is kept on!):



I currently have another 2 unreserved cases in silver left, so if anybody's interested, you know what to do!

I want one repeater !!!. Let me know how to do it.

I always wonder how people navigate during the night........I can hardly see the track.

It is not affordable to join those kind of races. Too much money for most mortals. A dream will be to do a rallye of Tunessia. But I am just satisfied going to marocco with some friends.
You would not be affraid of doing an Africa Race without experience???.
Things can get nasty and experience is a grade. In Germany they organize nice rallyes like the Toureg. Also very appealing for me and my level.
These pictures are taken a few weeks ago. For personal reasons I did not go but I was told that tracks were in bad condition, gone or difficult to find, rivers very high, meaning you can be caught in the middle so you cannot pass, etc.

Naa, not really... My dad has almost 25 years of rallye experience. Over the years he has told me many of his beginner stories over and over again and how he has learnt from them. As long as I would've gone with him, there wouldn't have been anything to be afraid of!

I've also considered the Touareg as a beginners option for me. Heard a lot of positive feedback from many international riders. My main objective is actually to get to the UAE Desert Challenge in about 2 years time (after I'm done with school). The price is quite reasonable when compared to other major FIM rallyes. I might try an squeeze in the Touareg beforehand, though.

No More Cases Left

So guys, I HAVE NO MORE CASES LEFT FOR SALE A.T.M.

I currently have to work on my last 4 orders and get them out of the way before I can/will reorder some more cases...
Also, take a look at my rallye remote thread below in my signature!

Hi Max,

I'm really glad and relieved that you're happy with the stuff!!!
It's starting to look good with the remote project, too, as I just got another 2 orders for them overnight from guys here in Germany

Will keep you all updated on that, too!

Cheers,
Tony

Tony,

How about wireless on everything? Wireless front wheel sensor, wireless handlebar controls for odometer and roadbook, wireless from GPS to repeater. Now that you've conquered the basic instruments, how about making your products WAY superior to everything else on the market? I think lots of people would love to get rid of all the wiring mess that comes with these things, not to mention the troubles from the front wheel sensor wire breaking (I've seen several). There are lots of new super low power wireless modules available that might run for a year or more on a small watch battery (see pg 10 here, or ZigBee, or DASH7). Production is boring. Go back to the fun of circuits and coding for 2010!

Scott
