Not only can you clock anything from ball speeds to race cars, now you can broadcast your measurements in real-time onto a compatible display screen. Although repeated requests were made to Benjamin Franklin for possible alternatives, none was forthcoming, and Turtle was sidelined for the winter. Bushnell’s basic design included some elements present in earlier experimental submersibles. Using it in compass mode is more of a problem. If you are using it to hike in some general direction, and don’t trust instantaneous readings (see above), no problem. Note that our test only counts a course as “covered” for the NEO XS if it has both front-center-back information and hazards.
The code for the hazards is slightly confusing but typically, I can figure out that “RGB” means “right green bunker”. There is a key to all codes in the manual. The “backlight” remains on for approximately 10 seconds after a button is pushed.

The Royal Navy had recently began installing copper sheathing on the bottoms of their warships to protect from damage by woodworms and other marine life, however the lining was paper-thin and could not have stopped Lee from drilling through it.
Most of the records that do exist concern Bushnell’s request for funds. Bushnell met with Jonathan Trumbull, the governor of Connecticut, during 1771 seeking financial support.6 Trumbull also sent requests to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. Optimized to work with the Bushnell SpeedScreen wireless display, clock and share your measurements easily at any time with no setup required. You just keep zeroing in on the location. So if the «direction to go» indicator jumps around it doesn’t really matter as long as it’s generally correct.
