Is there anyone using the MQGPS-HiDef on a kart? I'm curious to know if it would be able to withstand the vibrations of a shifter kart in an autocross setting. I'm afraid the kart would be too violent and would hate to purchase one and not be able to use it.
Thanks,
Scott

I think there should be no issues on a Kart, except for much higher g loads in the data. haha

We do have a 30 day money back gaurantee! If you have problems with it we'll take it back if its in resaleable condition of course.

Give us a call to discuss.

Kevin

It's small an light enough, that you might be able to at least mount the gps unit to your helmet. If you don't need to view the lap timer on track, you could also mount the pocket pc on/in your suit. Your body would absorb the abuse.

I would recommend the MQGPS-Quantum for a kart. The kart benefits from the additional accuracy and the inertial accelerometers.

Having both autocrossed and raced a kart wheel-to-wheel, I would not mount any data aquisition (other than video) to the head. Your head simply moves around too much. Some people lean into corners, or after a longer race (or earlier in the season!) their head tilts to the outside of the corner due to neck strain. That has to play havoc with the accelerometers!

Our MQGPS TraQr model is GPS only and wouldn't be affected by head movement much. Our Quantum does use internal accelerometers and I would suggest mounting it directly to the kart.
