THE DUAL XGPS150A GPS RECEIVER MEETS THE DEMANDING NEEDS OF HIGH-PERFORMANCE MOTORSPORTS

HEATHROW, Fla. (September 6, 2012) Dual Electronics Corporation, a leader in car audio and portable GPS solutions, announced today that Cantrell Motorsports has incorporated the XGPS150A Universal Bluetooth GPS Receiver with its CMS Lap Timer Pro system. The XGPS150A provides high-speed and high-accuracy GPS coordinates to the CMS Lap Timer Pro app that records video and a variety of data including the car\'s location, speed, G forces, lap times and other information, in real time, for immediate analysis at the track site.

Cantrell Motorsports, an expert in race car preparation and driver training, chose the XGPS150A after extensive testing of several GPS products. \"The Dual XGPS150A GPS Receiver meets two critical demands of the car racing industry,\" said Pete Stoppani, Cantrell Motorsports. \"The 5Hz sampling rate makes it a highly accurate GPS, which is a must when recording the performance of a fast moving car along the race track, and, the Bluetooth wireless connection allows for optimal location of the GPS receiver, while the iPod Touch running the CMS Lap Timer app is safely stored inside the car,\" added Stoppani.

Cantrell Motorsports is also a proud sponsor of the Palatov Race Team, the 2012 Pike\'s Peak International Hill Climb Unlimited Class Champion, who has been training and racing with the CMS Lap Timer Pro app and the XGPS150A GPS Receiver for over a year. \"Leveraging the capabilities of consumer-level electronics for our specialized application is a brilliant idea and the Dual GPS solution is very well executed,\" said Dennis Palatov, Owner, Palatov Motorsport. \"Having data-overlaid video right there at the track is excellent for driver development and a motorsports-dedicated lap timer device with anything near these capabilities would cost couple thousand dollars and probably wouldn\'t be as easy to use,\" added Palatov.

High-performance car racing joins a long list of applications for the XGPS150A, which is being used in aviation, boating, car navigation, golfing, geocaching, fitness and many more. The XGPS150A is a fast and accurate WAAS GPS Receiver for use with the iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and other Bluetooth-enabled Android devices. The lightweight receiver measures only 2-inches square, and comes with a non-slip pad that holds it securely in place on most surfaces. The wireless Bluetooth connectivity allows the user to place the GPS receiver up to 30 feet away from the device it connects to, in a place with the best view of the sky. The internal rechargeable battery lasts up to 8 hours of continuous use and a 12-30V cigarette lighter adapter and USB charging cable are included. The XGPS150A works with most apps that require GPS, and a sample list of apps can be found on www.xgps150.dualav.com.
