Transponders

Hi all, As you might be aware NT and WA are now using or very shortly using Mylaps Transponders as their primary source for lap scoring at their meetings.  It is now SA’s time to decide whether to implement Mylaps Transponders as well, this also includes Weipa as they are the only other club not using them at present.  Mylaps have been very generous with their offers and for holding costs at same price for several months already. It must be taken into serious consideration as this offer won’t last for very long.  The offer from Mylaps is as follows  30 x TR2 transponders (2 year subscription) @ $199.00 total $5970.00 With these clubs will receive FREE of charge X2 server and decoder with cabling Orbit 5 ‘standard’ software Detector loop (20 metres) Total saving of $9181.70 There will be an additional freight charge of approx $35.00 per unit.  So if we sell 30 transponders to drivers @ $199.00 we will receive the operating system at NO charge.  Additional Costs for Clubs  -Only other expense would be that of replacing the loop to new Mylaps Loop  -Clubs may need to upgrade their Laptop, the minimum requirements are  -1GHz 32-bit(x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor   -1024 MB memory  -Approx 200 MB of hard disk space  -Network Adapter  -Operating System: Windows Vista (all versions), Windows 7 or 8 as a minimum.  -Clubs may elect to purchase Speedhive live timing but this is not essential and costs $1099 a year on subscription.  -We don’t expect clubs need to hold additional transponders for hire as it would be hard to get a return on your expense. Drivers can borrow others if a fault occurs at the track.  Costs For Drivers  TR2 transponder with 2 year subscription $199.00 (includes Transponder, TR2 charge cradle, TR2 Holder and micro USB cable)  Additional TR2 holders for additional karts are available @ $12.50 each Speedhive App for smartphones etc is for Drivers at NO COST and data available once uploaded by the club throughout the event. Ongoing costs for transponder subscription (initial price of $199.00 includes transponder, accessories and 2 years subscription) can be purchased via Speedhive App and at different rates. 1 year $84.99 2 Year $139.00 5 Year $289.00 NOTE if a transponder stays in subscription it remains in Warranty, if subscription expires it loses warranty.  Operating the System  From all reports from clubs already using Mylaps and from the testing done in WA, the system is a lot easier to understand and operate that the previous Bechronised System.
