New fan technology

I learned today that people are now using the new high end GPS devices to track the speed of coasters.

I talked to three guys at PKI who were using them there.

They work very well in most cases, but Top Gun and Beast have too much interference (tunnels, overhead machinery).

They show elevation, speed, angle of drop, and vertical Gs.

Of course, the people using them have to be able to hold them. I'm not that good at riding hands free for an entire ride on the major coasters.
