    Stupid question but could the GPS be moved to the throttle side? I mean the driver needs to be paying attention to where he's going, the throttle man can focus on the speed and balance. I know I am just an amateur, but seems pretty common sense to me....

    Racepak doesn't have GPS units-so that would be a waste of time

    gps

    Not stupid but we run one infront of rick small digital.
    I run two in front of me a livorsi needle type and a garmin but the garmin dosent have the abilty to show large numbers.
    The livorsi is to easy to break out with if you are trying to run right on the number and we can out pace the needle.

    Here's an idea..........build your boat to run the number and forget the GPS.

    Gary talk to Dan. I believe there is a digital output on most units and he should be able to set you up with an industrial display in just about any size.

    Neal a 12 inch display would be great kind of hard to race with bifocals.

    Race pak is indeed GPS based and also extremely accurate, it updates like 100 times a second or something. You could use it to adapt a larger display if you wanted. It also will get you real time prop slip, data logging, lap counter, etc. etc. IT's cool. You may not want that much of a quick up date as your Garmin, and OPA units are much slower and you will find yourself getting passed if you only pay attention to an actual accurate speed measuring device. Another good company to look at is VBOX they are used in all sorts of motorsports and testing facilities, again 100 hz speed, Something you will not get with the GPS "Engines" as in an OPA unit.
