We are one year old!

We are a bunch of rally navigators, software developers and rock stars who are passionate about TSD rallying.

It was exactly a year ago that we discovered the FX9860GII. We were thrilled of course; this was the first piece of programmable hardware that fit all our requirements. Big numeric keyboard, inexpensive, large screen, battery life that ran into days. While programming in BASIC was the easy way to go, we knew from the beginning that our product had to have a kickass UX and that BASIC was not up to the task. C and ASM it was, and after dusting off the old K & R and with a little prayer to the pointer Gods, we wrote the first main() we had in more than 20 years.

Half a bottle of Old Monk and five Pearl Jam albums later, the alpha version of TSDMeter was born.

We knew ‘TSD Rallying’ was a niche market. There was no money to be made making a product for it and we had no business plan or model. But we did have a clear goal: ‘make TSD Rallying an easy sport to get into’. After more than 9000 lines of code, many iterations to the product, countless rally wins and helping many a novice come into the sport, we are proud to have lived up to that goal!

But the success is not ours alone, it is yours too, our passionate customers! It is you who helped us through all of last year to improve the product and market it.

“We are all rockstars” -:)
