Has anyone tried out the new Gtech Pro Competition yet?
Is it worth double the price of the older Gtech Pro?

I have one, but it's not useful to me yet, because it just has the usual drag-racing modes. I'm waiting for g-g mapping modes that will help in an autocross or road course.

Andre, thanks for the reply.
What is a g-g mapping?
Is it going to be available through firmware upgrade?
What else does it do (or supposed to do) to justify double the price? Do you recommend it?

g-g mapping is what's also known as a traction circle. It's a mapping of the lateral (sideways forces during turns) vs. longitudinal g-forces (braking and acceleration), hence g-g.

I believe they are going to eventually come out with software that does this, because they've said they're going to do road-racing applications, but there's been no announced schedule.
