Use of a timer with nav...

Recommended Posts

Dose anyone use or know of these timers that could be used in


navigation, etc. The HLP T3 Timer, going for around $30. It appears to


be and Ok unit but was wondering if anyone has used one?

i dont use one personally, but during my training on a trike, it was


fitted with one, and was quite handy... i usually wear a quality


watch when i fly, (i only wear it flying, it has backup Altimeter, and whiz wheel around the bezel)


and use the timer function on the watch, a good aviators watch is


worth it weight in gold, if not more, the watch doesnt weigh much! as a backup i use my GPS

Thanks for the info... Re using wrist watches I use a Suunto X-Lander which has time (of-course ),


an excellant altimeter which is accurate to some 10 metres, a barometer


which allows the setting of area QNH, etc, etc and shows trends, an


electronic compass plus various memories... Like yourself I find it


makes a great backup unit and according to the company they rate more


accurate than some of our aircraft instructments.

Thanks for info re Tandy's timer... after checking out the HLP T3 unit


it appears to be an 'OK' unit but the Tandy/DSE timer appears quite


good too and have a few more features, etc. As they are easily


available, reckon I go with one of them.
