202 Geotrip V5 Rally Computer
The Terratrip 202 Geotrip V5 rally computer, the latest version of the 202 series, incorporates GPS & GLONASS technology making installation and use easier than ever before. By using GPS to calculate the distance it removes the necessity to fit speed sensors to the car and also does not require calibration. This is an added bonus if different size wheels or tires are used during an event. GPS can also be more accurate than traditional speed probes because of the amount of wheel spin encountered with most rally cars, which would otherwise give a false distance reading.
The inbuilt GPS & GLONASS unit is far more accurate than those found in smart phones or sat nav devices and is proven accurate to 0.2% of total distance driven.
The option is still there to add up to two traditional speed probes if required as some events may be held in areas of dense forestry where a satellite signal may not always be present. In this instance the computer instantly recognizes that the satellite signal is lost and automatically switched the input to the speed probe until signal is restored. This way there is no break in the distance recorded. If the satellite signal is lost and no additional probes are in use, then the computer estimates the distance traveled while the signal was out.
