      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

    Whilst viewing the race, click in the image on the boat and scroll to the far right of the pop up window, goes through wind speed, boat speed, TWA, distance etc before getting to lat/long.
  2. Tacktick Race Master battery

    Hi all I've managed to find a quiet 30 seconds in work so decided to do a bit more investigation. The batteries appear to be lithium ion rechargeable with a code of ML2430 and an output of 3v and 100mAh. There are wired in two pairs which are paralleled together so the unit runs from a 3v supply. I disconnected the flying leads from the battery and applied a power supply to them and switched it on. There was life in the unit buy only briefly.... the message that appeared disappeared after 5 seconds and said. rSt MnEt (I believe it means reset micronet) Is it usual for the display to turn off after this amount of time if the rest of the system isn't in range? However I can't seem to work out why I can't switch the unit back on without switching the power supply off and on again. I now believe that the batteries are at fault for the unit not switching on. Thanks Tris
  3. Tacktick Race Master battery

    I've returned from working away on Monday and got around to having a look at it yesterday. I've put a DMM across the batteries, both pairs are giving about 2.2V each. Im assuming that both pairs should be a combined 3v when fully charged I believe I should still be able to switch the unit on and see some life. I've taken the unit apart to see if I could fund any crud around the switch and it all looks clean. I'll upload some pics when I return home and can compress the pics. Looking at it I think I'm back to the drawing board, any further suggestions?
  4. Tacktick Race Master battery

    Hi All Thanks for the swift responses, There is an access panel in the back to get to the batteries, Ive had a look at the condition of the batteries and physically they look ok so it may be as Ryley Said; some crud under the button membrane. I will leave it charge up for a couple of days and check the condition of the batteries before removing the case and checking the buttons. Cheers for the help so far.
  5. Hi all. When we bought our J80 a couple of years ago, a Tacktick Racemaster (believe it's a T070 or T075) was included in the Sale. It's always worked perfectly however this year we seem to be having issues. We believe that the battery has given up the ghost as it's not switching on even after a week in the window charging. Is it possible to change the battery on these units, and does anybody know where to get a replacement? Thanks in advance Tris
