Have you ever felt like you were on a fast lap only to find out that you were actually going slower? With the data gathered from just one lap with a GPX Pro, you'll be finding tenths before you know it. Add a segment at the beginning and end of each turn to isolate your problem areas or, with GPStudio, overlay one of your faster friend's laps on top of your own so you can see how they're doing it.
Out of the box, your GPX will come ready to race. Just strap it to your vehicle and let it take care of the rest. After your first lap, its automatic start/finish detection will read the completion of a lap and start logging data. Gone are the hassles of setting up a trackside beacon or walking out on track to set your start/finish manually.
Out of the box, your GPX circuit-mode spinner is set to display your RPM, speed, gear position, lap number and running lap time. As with almost every other facet of the GPX, this screen is fully customizable and can be moved around and customized to your heart's content.
For each session recorded in Circuit Racing mode, the GPX has the ability to graph a map of the track on screen, without even uploading to your PC. In addition, you have the ability to play the lap in real time with your RPM, speed and split times all displayed on screen at the same time.
With its unique Point-to-Point racing mode, the GPX allows you to set your start, finish and split points from the comfort of your own pit. Using software available for free on the internet (Google Earth, for instance), you can pinpoint the exact longitude/latitude coordinates of all your start, finish and split points. By allowing you to plug in your latitude and longitude coordinates manually, you're free to spend your time tuning for your next session instead of walking the track to program your timer.
In Point-to-Point mode, the GPX allows you to set your start, finish and split points from one convenient screen. Check marks appear next to points that already have GPS data so you'll always know what you've set and what you haven't.
With the GPX Pro, you can enter your Point-to-Point lines through GPS capture or manually enter your longitude/latitude coordinates from the comfort of your own pit using a program like Google Earth to obtain your coordinates and enter them into your GPX yourself.
In addition to the current session time, RPM (with tachometer display), speed and gear, the running spinner for point-to-point mode includes the distance to finish and distance to next split, so you know exactly where you are on the track.
What timer would be complete without some special consideration for speed in a straight line?
The GPX Pro comes loaded with features designed to assist the drag racer. With its 3-axis accelerometer and programmable LED tachometer, you'll be able to measure your reaction times and hone your launch.
Also included are features designed to measure the peak performance of your ride. With several different speed modes like 0-60mph, 0-60-0mph and roll-on, you'll be able to measure your acceleration with precision. In addition, you are able to graph your ride's power band, braking capabilities and horsepower to help see spots where you might need some tuning.
With 10 separate ways to measure your vehicle's speed in a straight line, you'll know the ins and outs of your ride completely. In addition to the standard 1/8th and 1/4th mile drag modes, you can calculate your 0-60 time to test acceleration or your 0-60-0 time to calculate acceleration and braking power.
In addition to its numerous racing modes, the GPX also has the ability to start your drag race from a standing start or with a light tree using its 8 on-board LEDs. When you are using the Tree Lights to start your drag race, the GPX's 3-axis accelerometer will record your reaction times to help improve your starts.
The Drag Race summary screen, although fully customizable using GPStudio, comes ready to display your type of drag race, max speed, distance and your reaction time from a Tree start.
With Instrument Mode, your GPX Pro becomes a fully functional dash and tachometer. With its ultra bright LED tachometer and shift lights, the GPX may even be a suitable replacement for your stock dash. Although the GPX will not record your data in this mode, it can display whatever data you are wired to collect directly on the screen in real-time. Using the customization features available to you in GPStudio, you are free to organize and arrange your Instrument Mode screen to suit your specific needs.
