Colour GPS Trip Meter (HMGT5000)

Full Featured Trip Meter with Integrated GPS

Hummingbird's GPS Trip Meter provides a highly visible and configurable distance readout, independent of the vehicle. It operates as a highly-accurate GPS-based trip meter and odometer with up to eight customisable counters. In addition a highly-configurable event-logging system allows an operator to save the location of events (these can be as diverse as simple speed zones in a Council application to blasting zones in a mine); later, these events can be transferred wirelessly to a PC with the supplied software and shown on a Google Maps display.

No installation is required.

Powerful Performance

Designed for harsh automotive environments, the module features a tough fascia with integrated buttons and LCD graphics display. An adjustable screw or suction mount allows for optimum positioning for the operator.

The ability to track 50 satellites simultaneously, enhanced receiver sensitivity and active antenna result in fast time-to-first-velocity-calculation as well as the ability to operate in the harshest RF environments such as canyons and cities. Speed errors will occur in RF blackout zones such as tunnels. Distance lost due to RF blackout is compensated for by adding it to the total distance recorded once satellites become visible again.

Three dimensional velocity calculations are typically accurate to 0.36km/h and are updated 4 times per second. In application measurements of distance have typically resulted in accuracies of better than 0.25% over 1km. For best accuracy, the vehicle should be moving at a speed of greater than 2km/h.

Up to eight trips are displayed simultaneously as well as current speed and the number of satellites being used. Trip statistics such as average speed, maximum speed and trip time can be viewed via the integrated menu. The display is highly visible both at night and in sunlight due to the use of an industrially rated, transflective graphics LCD display. An external switch is provided that allows reset of the currently selected trip when pressed.

The unit is provided with a 1.5m power cable terminated in a standard automotive cigarette-lighter connector. An external magnetic-mount GPS antenna is provided. A bulkhead-mount antenna is available as an option for permanent installations.

A 2.4Ghz RF antenna is included to enable communications with the desktop software suite via the optional USB RF modem.
