Larsen & Brusgaard first introduced their new "Pro-Track", an acoustic warning system, during the last PIA Symposium. Now they have started its serial production. The "Pro-Track" can be used as audible altimeter, electronic logbook and freefall computer. It continuously stores detailed information about the last 200 jumps including date, jump number, dive type, exit altitude, opening altitude, freefall time and four different speed readings. The retail price in Germany will be DM 571,00.
