BTW, we are going to make GH-625XT. Which is more economical product, but has superior performance than GH-625. ;D  We will recuit more hero join our group!

Let's expect!

Sincerely, Geoffrey
Geoffrey !  You are making us curious !  ::) Please tell more details !  ;)

What do you mean with "more econimical" ? Will it be less expensive ? Or what ?
And what is "superior performance" ?  How does it compare to GH-505 ?

Come on... tell something more !

Geoffrey,
The GH-625XT sounds interesting, when will you be able to tell us what features it will have and in what ways it will be superior to the current GH-625?

Hi Hubert, Jonas,

They are two different application industry.
Since it is under development, so I only can expose little:
- Simliar size as GH-625, but upgrade performance
- 15 battery life
- SirF StarIV
- E-Compass built-in as optional
- Higher resolution display than GH-625 and four gray color
- IPX7
- 5KHz HRM as Polar compatible
The others I hold as secretary. ;)

Sincerely,

Geoffrey

Geoffrey,
I'm very eager to hear more but I know I have to wait, you don't want to give away all your secrets at once...  ;)
How much better is the SirF StarIV? Less power consumption? Better accuracy?

That sounds good, but what I understand now, it is better than the old one. Will it be cheaper as well!

I  am curios if smart trackback is quicker than now, I experienced more times that finishing one trackpoint it takes a bit long to see the next. I had several times that it showed the next point just to late, so I did past the turn of. The good thing is you always can get on the right track again by skipping a series of trackpoints, only that was then not the planed route.

Yesterday I joint the Giro Italia this was a route over 130 km just for tour cyclist, more than 5000 people did join. We (our club) did designed the route.
Nice to be on the road with police in front and no stops for traffic lights etc.

Best regards,

Albert

Hi Jonas,

Sirf IV has a lot improvment than the last. The strength is:
The SiRFstarIV Advantage

The SiRFstarIV architecture core is comprised of a high-performance GPS location engine, smart location sensor interface, adaptive micro-power manager and active jammer remover, which together deliver:

• Twice the search capacity of the industry proven SiRFstarIII™ architecture, resulting in enhanced sensitivity, reduced time-to-fix and improved positional accuracy

• Advanced micro-power management and integrated switched-mode regulation that maintains hot-start conditions with minimal energy (50-400 microamperes)

• Intelligent MEMs sensor support (for accelerometers and other sensors) that improves the location experience, enabling greater contextual awareness, more sophisticated energy management and enhanced indoor positional accuracy

• Advanced DSP technology that actively searches for jammers and removes them prior to correlation for maximum GPS performance and design troubleshooting.

Hi Albert,

I think the restriction came from the resource of MCU.
We decided more powerful MCU instead of current, so it should be no problem.
We would like to make it more economical to let more people to experience our product. :D
Not likes Garmin always locate so high price. What do you think?

Geoffrey

Hi Geoffrey,

I do not think this is "Off Topic" any more, but the optional electronical compass and enhanced battery life sounds like you planed to make the device more "outdoor compatible".
Please do not forget the UTM-format entry issue than (see other threads), if the target group is also hikers, not just for training...

Geoffrey,
Very interesting! A watch with improved features at a lower price will be very competitive. I saw that the new Garmin FR 110 also uses the SirF StarIV but it has very few functions and is too simple for a "real" runner!  ;)

Thanks Geoffrey,


Your explanation about the new SirF StarIV is interesting. I hope the software is now looking at the positions of the available satellites, and taking if possible a few satellites that are lower in the ark so altitude becomes more reliable. Can you tell if that is a possibility? 8) When do you expect the new one to come out? My GH625 is mounted on the steering and it works excellent, so it can be used as bicycle computer as well, only I am missing some functions on it, what we already discussed. (totals, slope and sensors)
   
I have a word with the local shop again soon to see if he wants to order your product, but when is the bicycle computer ready?
 
Best regards,

Albert

Hi Skeptisch,

We offer more features in order to let more people enjoy their training and outdoor activity.
Of course, the major purpose is for training and UTM will be keep as well.

Hi Albert,

I am not sure it is helpful for altitude.
But Sirf IV is using prediction scenario to improve the TTFF. So it just needs only few satellite to get fix. And it also improve the power consumption.
The watch design concept is keep similar as GH-625. :)

Look forward to hearing good news from you.

Hi Geoffrey,
for me the new GH-625XT sounds more interesting than Gh-505. What about a build in barometric altitude measurement as optional?

Hi Snow_Freak,

Thanks for advice, I will check with engineering team.
625XT is under development and will be available by Q3, 2010.
