I got into Karting back in 2009, and in 2012 had to move across the US for a job and wound up taking a stupidly long break. I’m now getting back into karting, and seemed to have misplaced my AMB 160 transponder. Looking at these new ones now, I’m a bit confused and hope someone here could help answer some questions on these X2 Transponders:
You seem to be rail-roaded into a subscription. If I go for the one-year, and then let it lapse, will the Orbit/scoring software raise a stink? I don’t give a poop about pulling up my times online. The only point of my getting a transponder is for scoring.
I ran the "powered’ transponder. It was nice and clean; 2 wires and you’re done. The new one appears to require a bunch of dongles and extra cables and I cannot identify how much of this garbage is necessary. Can I just bypass the middle dongle with the power cord and power the transponder itself directly?
(I will be looking for my old transponder still…)
