I have the standard XT Racing IR with Beacon and the XT Racing GPS Zed
I have tested at several tracks around Texas and found the GPS Zed to be very accurate and match up with the IR.
I also have a plague of students running Harry's on phones and their times can be off by huge amounts. In most cases it shows them running much faster times than IR/GPS show so I don't have a lot of faith in GPS Timers via phones.
The worst case being at Circuit of the Americas a student was elated he was running 2:40s and the GPS/IR had us at 3:00 Flat. Telephone signals are spotty out in the country you can barely make phone calls let alone trust GPS Triangulation. A true GPS device does not work without LOS to the sky, the phones do .. thus they are using mobile towers with spotty signals.
Am very happy with XT Racing in general.
