The FAQ and Notepad++ did the trick :).
According to Vbox Tools my car did it in 8.092s, needed 133,34m and with a average acceleration of 0.34g. Pretty impressed if this is accurate data!

Can anyone tell me if 1.0.4 is the latest firmware version for the XGPS160?

No, it is not. I have 1.2.0 installed and it seems to be the latest available in the public. Used the iPad SkyPro tool to install it.

SkyPro app on iPhone 4s. Update firmware for XGPS160

Post by 38F/62R » Tue Nov 26, 2013 5:38 pm

I downloaded the SkyPro app to my iPhone(I don't have an iPad). Confirmed that my XGPS160 firmware isn't up to date. However, the firmware update function on the app doesn't work. Has anybody else run into this?

Cheers, got it. It keeps crashing. Go to the Satellite screen and scroll down in an attempt to read the average SNR and it crashes. Just me?

It doesn't work very well for me either.

I've now used my XGPS160 at 3 different events.

I usually have around 18 satellites.

The battery lasts for a long time, even after it's sat for weeks.

Consistently receiving @10hz to my iPhone 5 (7.0.4). I usually don't have any connectivity issues either.

Overall I'm very happy and I find my setup within .1 of a second compared to on track timing. I stopped renting transponders about 7 events ago, I'm loving the savings and data. Excellent combo with LapTimer.

Can anyone comment on their relative experience of the 150 vs. the 160? Aside from the 10hz rate, how does it compare in accuracy, speed, reliability, dropouts, etc?

Thanks,
-Christian
