Does anyone know of a good hand held GPS unit that not only gives MPH but will also calculate 1/4 time and 0-60 time? or is there even such a thing?

I have not seen one. Rent a Hertz Z06 Corvette and take it drag racing. They watch for abusive behavior and tell you if you have been speeding on public roads by way of the GPS built into the car. That should tell you if it can be done Very Happy

About all I know is is the G-Tech type of accelerometers. They will measure what you desire although there is always some discussion as to how accurate they are. As far as a GPS device, I haven't ever heard of one. Clay

should be pretty easy to check just use it at the track and compare what it says vs the time slip. I am starting to think there might be a liability issue with giving 1/4 time if some dumb ass kills himself on mainstreet trying to do a 1/4 mile run.
