Unless a miracle happens, we can count RG out for the podium. It's insane he's almost 50m behind after just 2 stages.

Does anyone know of a description of how the GPS works in the dakar? I understand roadbook navigation, but I'm curious how the GPS interacts.

Also, when someone has to deviate from the road book to circumvent an obstacle, what's the strategy for keeping track of everything and getting back on course?

He has a never give up attitude which I like. Knowing him he will still try and win every stage going forward.

The problem is we still have 2 more days of dunes from hell to come.

The GPS is normally "off", only displaying speed over ground. When you get close to a waypoint via roadbook navigation, the GPS "unlocks" and displays an arrow guiding you the last meters to the WP. The WP is then logged and you can continue navigation.

nope.

But "Us vs Them", "Kiss my ass", "Minis are for girls" and "Nasser designed that buggy so it's crap" are...

2) Between 2 WPM or WPS, the GPS will only show the compass heading and the speed. Once the
Competitor has entered a 800 m radius around a WPM or a 3 km radius around a WPS, the GPS will
display all the usual functions of a GPS: COG (Cap over Ground), SOG (Speed over Ground), CTW
(Cap to Way Point), DTW (Distance to Way Point), etc.
All this information will also be displayed on the screen of the GPS towards a WPE, once the
preceeding Way Point has been passed. In the case where the Competitor has not validated the
preceeding Way Point, the information will be displayed on the screen, once the radius of 3km
around the WPE has been penetrated.
3) Competitors must respect the chronological order of the Way Points of the Stage concerned. If

from pg 23 official rule book

Also, as I understand it, if you determine you are completely lost you have a code you can enter and it will point you toward the next waypoint. Doing this means you incur a time penalty and you can only do it a certain # of times through the rally.

I noticed that Mario Patrao, the rider with the only Suzuki in the event, has a 15 min penalty. Anybody knows why?

What is the difference between a WPM and a WPS?

Nasser was complaining that he was within 3km of a WPS but the gps didn't turn on and give him a heading to head towards?

IF you do that, it opens all the WP's and you are disqualified when you get back.
