Tripy II units work much better then the old ones that couldn't hold a signal. The units come with a 5 year warranty but expect to break about 40% of the units during a weeks riding.

Still the best there is and not many come even close imho.

40% failure rate?

Costs a lot to get into, get to, etc a rally. I'd want to be damn sure my rally wasn't going to end due to a failure in the nav gear...
