We've been quiet for some time due to work commitments.

Ok, the Trip/CAP is finally in production.  We still have a a stability issue with the new GPS aerial.  Had to do a redesign of the housing to accommodate different GPS models, both internal and external. (Actually we are back at our original design criteria)

We currently wait for the next shipment of power and switchpod cables due to land this week.

AND THEN THE GPS issue.  There was a worldwide shortage of the original GPS we used.  As none of the suppliers in America or China could give an indication on the availability we decided to go for another model (supplier) with better spec (according to the data sheet) BIG MISTAKE. We now sit with 23 units that does not perform as expected (WWAAII OFF the datasheet spec)  So where can I get money to bring the 'correct' unit in (ample stock at various suppliers now)

The Roadbook holder also went on a diet.  For version 1 we decided to abandon the cartridge design and actually ended up with probably the lightest (750g), most compact unit.  Access to the drive side is fantastic.  We also realized that this unit could actually be upgraded as the slip in cartridge of the original design.

Ok, I gotta go to bed, hectic week ahead, the customers are waiting.
