Johnski's and mine arrived at the "Southern Ocean Park" yesterday, but thinking it was due today, we've only just got them.
Unpacking them was a bit of a revelation.


Very well packed, 2 chargers, car and bike mounts, and armband.

Then we started to play with the buttons, next surprise was it has Australian maps loaded.


ignore those vertical lines, I think it's some Polaroid artefact with the phone camera, to the eye they aren't visible


And here's a comparison with the GW52 unit and display size.




There's not much difference in plan view, the Motion is about 2mm shorter, but the Motion is thinner. The difference in display size is substantial.
As soon as I sail with it, there'll be more stuff.

I've set mine to 5hz and I'll wear it in my helmet along with DIY V3 also at 5hz. I'm expecting very close results. When I get to a windows computer with Ucentre I'll set them both to 10hz.

At the moment can only connect with windows, neither mac, ubuntu or mint will do so.
The latest GPSResults will process, .oao files.

Had a look at one today. If it pass the tech stuff it looks like it will meet everyone's needs.

Received mine yesterday as well and looks like a great little GPS! Very easy to navigate, download files and update software (already a new version available)! Will trial alongside my GW52.

When I made the first few of the new revisions, Laurent noticed an issue on his Mac. I spent a week on it but couldn't find a software fix. It was hardware related. So I decided to send these few devices to users who confirmed they only use Windows. Prior and later devices should be fine on Windows/Linux/MacOS. These few are Windows only. And if I sent one to someone not using Windows, drop me a mail. I thought only Andrew asked for a MacOS version.
The devices sent this week and further are all Windows/Linux/MacOS-capable.

We have had samples for a couple of days now, but not really any chance for proper on water testing yet.
We have done some car testing and walking around. We have found a few small but important things so far that will need to be changed, but otherwise it is looking very good. Julien is very responsive and helpful so I don't expect that it will take long, but who knows?
