    Worth every penny.

    This has to be the fastest delivered item I've ever had from an online organisation. The only issue that I've had with the Nomad 5 so far is that it would not talk to my R1 receiver. As it turned out it was not the Nomads fault, it was the R1 firmware that was causing the problem. As soon as i updated the firmware they were talking as if they had known each other for years. I searched high and wide on how to resolve the issue could not find anything on the web. Came across it by accident. The accuracy of the Nomad out of the box was great,1.2 metres, when connected to the R1 with RTX Viewpoint it got down to 41 cm. More than happy with the product and the service from JA. Would deal with them again. Regards Mark
