Latest video+GPS tracking
The latest version of the Attackpoint GPS+video tracking adds a very nice feature - the video syncs with an orienteering map from QuickRoute. You can see an example from a training course I ran yesterday. Click to start the video and a dot on the orienteering map tracks the progress. Check the box for "follow" and the map will stay oriented. Very cool.
I made the tracking video by running the course with a head cam. I cut the file size down and may have gone a bit too far. The resolution isn't so good. But, it gives you a good idea of how the Attackpoint system functions.
I spent some time looking at head cam videos and came across one I hadn't seen before. On Youtube is is listed as having just 14 views, so I'm guessing there aren't many people who've seen it. Anders Nordberg runs a sprint course with Jorgen Rostrup following him. It makes for a really nice use of a head cam and it is quite fun to watch Nordberg orienteer. It gives a sense of how relentless a really good orienteer moves through the forest.
