I have been watching a few Dakar shows on the rebull app and wonder if anyone is using the tripmeter for Norra?
I know the lowrance can do it but not sure how the resets work and bumping it up? Am I over thinking it?

In this years (2018) NORRA the last stage had no GPS guidance and all navigation was done using the provided course book. An iPhone (or Android) odometer app was all our team needed to navigate using the book. The odometer app gets accurate GPS data from the XGPS160 puck and had an easy to view odometer with simple reset button. It featured a trip function too. We installed that same app onto the iPad that runs LeadNAV and the backup iPhone. Worked perfect.

For the rest of the stages the tripmeter would only be of benefit if your co-driver was staring at the course notes the entire time... something that wasn't necessary with a Lowrance + LeadNAV in our cars.
