i-Blue 737

Post by random1 » Tue May 03, 2011 7:18 am

I have had good results at an autocross event with the i-Blue 737 external GPS. The update rate this past Sunday varied between 5 - 10 Hz and the reported accuracy was 2 ft (61 cm). This was my third event with good consistency. For this event the start line was back about 15 ft (5 m) from the start lights. I never got a pre-mature start and attribute this to the good accuracy.

This GPS requires a Jailbroken iPhone and the BStack GPS app to allow use.

Highly recommended!

Thanks Rob for the feedback. Please note that accuracy reported with BTStack GPS is not valid currently, it is just a default. Not getting laps started by accident so near to the trigger is a good indicator for good accuracy, that's true.
