Introduction

Dual XGPS160 SkyPro GPS Receivers feature fast signal acquisition and 10Hz positioning updates.  In stand-alone mode the XGPS160 can store location data to internal memory, allowing drivers to record sessions on the XGPS160 without connecting the GPS to the MyRaceLab mobile app during the session. 

Stored logs are downloaded from the XGPS160 using the SkyPro GPS Status Tool app. (available free on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store). The app allows you to set the GPS logging speed, turn on and off the automatic route recording feature, and to export the stored log file information.
