Just to clarify my post. The 1..2 function still works for bringing up distances and bearings. Just the math function that went along with that is no longer available. (1..2+4..5) to add the 2 distances together, ect.

Yes, the RPN cacl function has been around for the last version or so if I remember right (2007) You'll get used to using it is about all I can say. If you search back through the old posts. I believe the direct math function that was in 2006 was dropped to keep the user performance of the new versi...

You have to use the trackers. We use a Crain Data Collector Bracket on the pole and the tracker plugs into the port the Controller board does. You dont use the board when the tracker is plugged into it.

Unless you purchase a new 1200 series GPS.....then you can get FG on the controller.

We use a TCRA 1103 with FG for awhile now. Are you referring to the time it take to take a shot with FG as opposed to taking a shot normally just using the gun without FG? Is this your first time using a external Data Collector with the gun? (Have you always used the gun itself?) If thats the case, ...

yeah..pulling the battery works 100% of the time..

75% of the time when I do a on/off button hard boot, when it restarts I get the hour glass symbol which pretty much means its locked up. Only way I've found to remedy that is to pull the battery.
