    Cheers Mike, should have added that this is just to get me started practising around local roads and lanes. If I enjoy and get the knack for it ill look at some real kit.

    I think the Trail tech vector is the only one with adjustable odo via remote?

    Worked in the Baja rally. Had the vector as primary and vapor secondary. The remote isn't IP rated. I found out.

    I was rushed to out the phone down while typing earlier. I should mention that the vector is an adequate entry computer but it will quickly be inadequate of you choose to continue. The display isn't big enough for quick looks though it is ok for slower sit down sections mostly. I was happy with its performance for the mean time. I intend on cleaning and sealing the remote. It's in "the list."

    Yep, the Vector (now the Striker) is the only one that works with the remote. I'd have preferred the Vapor as it has the tach function but sadly isn't compatible with the remote.

    Russ (LKN4DRT) didn't have the instructions on how to switch his RNS TripMaster XL from Miles to Kilometers, so he installed a new conversion device...

    Monit G-100 and G-200 Rally Computers

    Monit Rally Computers have now released their new GPS enabled range of tripmeters, offering customers unprecedented ease-of-use in both installation and functionality. Monit has partnered careful industrial design with modern electronic innovations to launch a tripmeter that was compact, lightweight, and extremely easy-to-use. The new G-Series Rally Computers use a high powered industrial grade GPS receiver coupled with an external antenna to provide extreme accuracy for the competitor. To guarantee precise operation in all situations Monit have developed the GPS+ system that can combine the signals from the GPS with a traditional wheel speed sensor, providing automatic backup in case of signal loss.

    Looks interesting, but on the manufacturer website are no specs given for water resistance and thumb remote.
    This seems to be a dash board tripmeter for in car use only

    Looking for a CAP repeater but can't seem to find one. Any ideas?
    Everyone seems to be updating or coming out with new ones.

    My "old" 2013 edition RNS repeated was fantastic already, so I'm sure whatever Tony has up his sleeve this time is going to be even better!

    Spill the beans Tony, what's new?

    Super Dave,

    Not much use for a cap repeater on Oahu, which means you must have some other big plans? Or did you make road books for the trails at Kahuku? :lol3

    Using the road books available, how many points are on the rolls? On long days one roll per day or are they changed during the day?

    A typical 11 inch long "page" has 7 navigation points (rows). A long roadbook may have 50 to 60 "pages" or more, creating a continuous sheet 50 feet long or longer. When rolled up, that's a pretty big roll! With a long roadbook like this, it's common to cut it approximately in half and install the second half at a mid-day gas stop (where you might have a mandatory 15 minute stop).
