AMBrc3 Decoder replaces the AMBrc Decoder. This is the latest generation of AMB Decoder and is fully compatible with AMBrc Personal and Rechargeable Transponders. It features Serial and TCP/IP connectivity plus automatic updating of lap times from the Decoder to AMB's MyLaps Live web site. We will have these in stock by the end of August. bbk have been working with AMB testing prototypes of the AMBrc3 decoders for nearly a year and it is very well suited to low signal applications, such as RC Boats. The 2006-1 release of bbkRC fully supports the AMBrc3 decoder. There will be a full feature description available in a couple of days.
