Altitron Digital Altimeter Issue

Hi All,

My Digitude altimeter having finally died I purchased an Altitron Digital Altimeter. I like the big display but I'm having a problem with it's data logging. Although the AGL readings it's displaying on the plane and during a jump appear to be OK, on 6 out of 7 jumps the data logged by the device is corrupt. E.g., it will show I exited at 16,987 feet, my average speed was 297 MPH, top speed was 157 MPH and that I pulled at 66 feet. (This is just one example, there doesn't seem to be any consistency or pattern to the erroneous data.) I've tried a second unit, I've tried moving it from wrist to hand and I've tried reinitializing it -- no change in results. The USA distributer says they've never heard of this problem and the folks at my excellent local gear store are baffled. Any suggestions? This does not give me a warm, fuzzy feeling about continuing to use this device :-)

Tnx,
Dean
