Anyone used this lap timer? Starlane ATHON GPS "TYPE R" Lap Timer w/ TRACK MAPPING

Hey Guys,
Thinking about picking this up. But, I would like to know if anyone here uses or has used it & what your opinion is.
It's the Starlane ATHON GPS "TYPE R" Lap Timer w/ TRACK MAPPING

This is a GPS lap timer and track mapper. Looks like an awesome product if it's accurate.

I have been lookin at that for a while now. I just can't spend that much though for a lap timer.

I have one and it is great. The updated software and firmware make it even better. I would recommend this.

Thanks.
So, you haven't noticed anything negative. The lap times are consistently accurate? The Track mapper works well? Do you use the option to split the track into segments?
I am asking because I have a personal GPS I use. But, it doesn't seem to be 100% accurate.

I find it pretty accurate. I have not compared it a personal GPS system, but the track does show well and the split feature is very nice. I also enjoy the analysis that comes from the RPM increase/decrease graphs. The lap times have been in line with what the track personnel is indicating.


I will try and post some pics when I get a chance.
