    Good to here that you are interested! :clap
    No, I haven't really thought of adding this feature, as it isn't really relevant for rallye racing. AFAIK Touratech has a repeater model that supports this, but who wants to set the course every 2 minutes :dunno

    Should I add this feature, then you'd need to add an external button interface which makes it a little too complicated...

    I get your point.

    Is it possible to order your repeater, and do you think it will work with the
    GlobalSat MR-350 GPS, (with NMEA 0183 GGA, GSA, GSV, RMC, VTG, GLL).

    1. What increments of correction are available on your trip computer?

    2. Do you supply cables to hook the repeater the the ERTF, or do we get that somewhere else? I'd like to use a Garmin V or something similar for testing, but the ERTF for the rally.

    3. You selling your brackets and t-supports/fairing stays yet? I will have a 09 WR450F that is bone stock and will need trinkets!

    Hi Tony,

    I'm interested in the remote, and probably the GPS repeater. As far as I understand the remote can work with TT roadbook.
    Will the GPS repeater work with Garmin 2620?


    Thanks!

    Basically I have 2 different TM software versions (the 2nd one I only made last week). The first one having 2 individual trips, which are only accurate up to 100m (1 digit after the comma).
    The new software also has 2 trips. The first one being like before (100m accuracy), but the 2nd trip being accurate to 10m (2 digits after the comma).
    The 10m accuracy isn't really useful in long day rallies, but for events like Sardegna or the Berlin-Breslau.

    When you want to correct the 100m trip, you press and hold one of the correction buttons. The trip will slowly starting counting either up or down (roughly 2 increments/decrements per second). After a few seconds of holding the button for a longer period of time (about 5 seconds) the trip will starting counting rapidly. This is used to adjust more the KMs than the 100m...

    I will supply 1 cable per repeater. For the Garmin devices, I buy the accessory cables and fit my connectors on to them.
    For the ERTF cables, I custom make them (both connectors and the cable).

    If you want an extra cable, I can of course supply you one for some extra money...

    I've been asked this before. I'll have to ask my manufacturer how much it'd cost to have a small production going. Stay posted for updates!

    Hope I was able to answer your questions! :beer

    Yes, the remotes hand be wired to support either an MD or TT roadbook!

    As for your Garmin, it's a little more tricky. You see, the only data output your GPS has is USB. My repeater devices only support old fashioned serial data.
    Funny thing, though, is your User's Manual states the USB connector also sends the necessary serial data over the USB connector, but I can't find a suitable connector cable that would allow me to fix it to my repeater.
    What cables (other than a "normal" USB one) do you know that exist for your Garmin?!?

    Hi Tony!

    Sorry to missed you in La Spezia, but we got delayed. Anyhow, I would be interested in a GPS course repeater, if you still got one.

    Cheers,
    Ralf

    Tony, I presume you used your setup in the Desert Challenge? How'd it fare? Any changes or updates planned as a result?

    Hi Jared,

    I'm guessing in a few weeks time. I'll let you know of the exact, or close, dates ASAP. Hang in there :beer

    Damn, this thread hasn't been touched in ages!!!
    Thanks for the nice video, should've done one myself for better advertising :thumb

    NOTE: When stationary, the COG readings are almost useless, especially when the bike is inside your house, right Antal? :evil

    uhhhh... Indoors I use the 'demo' settings on the GPS :)

    Course over ground when standing still is no use when standing still, heading should work with the GPSMap 60CSX and its onboard compass.

    Hi Tony,

    CR's look great, any available in red and would they attach OK to a Garmin 276C (or can anyone out there confirm it will work)?

    How much for one shipped to me here in the UK please?

    Thanks.....

    Hello Mr Schattat,

    My self and a buddy would like a couple of your CR's. We both have the new Garmin 62s.This is a USB connection but I see from previous posts that you have adressed this.

    Bikes are leaving for the Tuareg on the 25th. Do you think that you could ship a couple to Scotland within a week or so?

    Cheers.
