#189503 - Not sure we're seeing eye to eye...
Responding to: J. Guy's previous message
If I can start my timer/counter program at the exact changeover of the minute, my mission will be to get the difference display to read "0" as I cross the finish line. Yes, there will be a slight difference if I did a lot of swerving vs dead on the centerline, but a late positioned sychroni=zing marker can compensate for that. Heack, I could go in rough with a stopwatch and just have the ultra-precision for the last straight away. Trigger it as I am a pre-calibrated 2 miles out and hone it to zero across the line. My input frequency from the sender should be nearly identical to the target rate and I would simply need to maintain a display of counts ahead or behind the fixed rate counter. Curves would not be an issue on the last straight.
