Description
Analog Display with Digital Accuracy At first glance, the ALTITRACKô looks like many of the more common analog altimeters used throughout the world... but look a little closer. ALTITRACKô is the only sport altimeter with an analog face but utilizes the most high tech and durable digital components for accuracy that surpasses every other mechanical sport altimeter currently available. L&B has also gone beyond the average by incorporating all of the popular features of our PRO-TRACKô audible and added several new and useful features to the ALTITRACKô. Imagine a visual altimeter that records your jump information from exit to landing, has the ability to download jump information to a computer, has an ergonomic fit, is both shock and water resistant, has upgradeable software... and most of all... is extremely easy to use... among its long list of features. You just found the answer youíve been looking for... ALTITRACKô.

Altitrack review 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: rjblake, 2014-07-21


Got a great deal on an almost new 2nd hand unit with cable and software - too good to turn down. Love the fit and fact that you arrive at DZ, turn it on and not have to worry about zeroing it before every dive. I still check it before every dive to make sure it is at 0ft before boarding. Check it when climbing and matches my Quattro at 1,000ft and the alti on board the plane at various heights up to altitude. Don't really use the playback function; but do download all the jumps to computer at the end of a weekend. Sync it with video which is kinda nice too. The software is not great, a bit outdated; but it works. I had a question I emailed to L&B and got an answer from Mads Larsen within 2 minutes! Now that is customer service to be proud of! I might supplement it with a digital alti and it'll be a Visio from L&B for sure!


Altitrack 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: BartPennings, 2013-08-23


I've made my first jump with my Altitrack in 2007. I bought it because I'm really in to gadgets, but it's more then just a gadget.

I like to simplicity on the "analog" side. During freefall you don't need to know your exact altitude and the big numbers and the colours (4000ft and below) make it easy to read.
On the other side (inside) it has a very easy to use and extended logbook. I personally don't use the playback functions. Just freefall time, heights and speeds.
Like some other people wrote before, I also had some problems with the software which L&B fixed very fast and appropriate.

So here are a couple of things I don't like about the Altitrack although it is an awesome altimeter and highly recommended!

- I used it in 2007 and 2008 for about 31 jumps. I didn't jump some years and started again in 2012. This year (2013) I had to replace my battery.
- I don't like the Jump-Track software. It has a very old fashioned look and it is not really user friendly.
- Some jumps with a short freefall (hop & pop) where not detected by the device.
- I would like to see a different way to attach the finger loop. The current velcro doesn't work 100%.

That said, I love my Altitrack and my other L&B products! This product is highly recommended.

Blue Skies!

Alti Track & L&B - Would recommend them to anyone! 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: wazdiver, 2011-12-28


I have owned my Alti-Track for two years now and have not had any issues with it what-so-ever. I've used it in all kinds of weather, rain ( at altitude ) and snow. All different temperatures from 22 degrees on the ground to 98 degrees on the ground, bright sunlight, night jumps and about everything in between. It has preformed flawlessly. It has never missed a jump, even a hop and pop from 2900 got tracked. I did have a problem loading my jump track software for it on a new computer with windows 7 and got in contact with L&B. Steffen e-mailed me back within minutes with the answers I needed and arranged to send me an update disc. They are a great company with great products.
