I'll take a look at the 749R and see if I can find the connector.

I just strapped it to the 749R test mule:

It works fantastically with the factory timing on the OE dash display. Just get into lap timing mode, hit the button to set your start/finish, and start enjoying your lap timer.

BTW:

New lap record from the service department past the insurance agency and around the back of the drywall company is 1:21.34

But I think I can get that down with some work on my lines.

Any idea if it'll do splits???

Boy, this is great news....I have a friend asking about it too,.....I may purchase!!!

It won't do splits. By hit the button, I mean on the gps unit. There is a single button on the unit, and it's function is to set the start finish.

The unit can't make the dash have any functions that weren't already there. It serves only as a very accurate and reliable method of triggering the stock system instead of the other two options:

1: Similarly expensive and generally flakey IR recievers which need a line of sight, to the beacon, which needs a battery, and gets confused when the sun is just right. Then someone steals the beacon when you forget it at the track.

2: Hitting the starter button on the finish line which is horribly innaccurate.

This GPS unit, what is the supply voltage? Is the signal just a TTL or 5 volt pulse?

This would be a VERY interesting item if it can replace beacons on other data systems as well....

My 999 has this plug on the frame, right side, near the steering head. My repair manual lists it as FINISH LINE SENSOR, number 22 on wiring diagram. The wires are labeled +15, TRAG, GND.

From my post on the first page of this thread. This is the Ducati side of things....don't know if that helps. If we knew the brand of the GPS unit then you could see if it would work with other systems...but...that would be undercutting Ducati Omaha....and I'm not interested in doing that!!! If I purchase, it will be through them.

It's a Starlane

Pin out was something like...blue/red = power, brown = signal, black/yellow = ground.

The colors vary from 749 to 848, but their function does not.

Thanks SO much for taking the time to check it out for us

I have been using the IR-2 system on mine, but would like to go to gps in order to get rid of the pit-lane tripod/battery thing

So it's just as plug'n'play the IR is and all you have to do is mark the finish/start line ? How do you "mark" it ? Which button is used for this ?

In any case I'm in the market for this. Got a direct link for us Crimson ? Price ?

Thanks in advance.

Doc

BTW- yesterday I tried a laptimer at a trackday that used two small receivers stuck to the side of my helmet that sent a signal to the pits and was recorded in realtime and via the net to a computer. Worked OK, but had some bugs to be worked out. The club running the day was charging $20 a day for the service. I'm going to get the GPS unit though.

Would you mind keeping me updated as soon as you get it ? I will be getting it too but not before September (too much $$$ spent on race tires lately ). Would love to know how it performs.

Thanks in advance,

Doc

I've used this at the last 3 track days on my 848, worked flawlessley every time..... as long as I remembered to turn the lap timer function on in the dash before going onto the track! Once you're out there, you can't turn it on, so you have to pit-in and stop, turn it on, then go back out. Also works great in conjunction with the DDA module to record the lap times and download them to your PC. Then you an Tardozzi can sit in the pits on the computer and review your data to see how to go faster!

Thanks Jarel,
Mine (Ordered from D.O.) should be here tomorrow. I'll use it on the track Monday, and report the results. I don't have the DDA system so no records.

Have fun on Monday and looking forward to hearing your report on the laptimer.

If it does work as it does on the 848/1098/1198, then I'm going for one too.
