1- Power supply
The ADSGPS is delivered with 2 batteries of type AA 1.5V but it can also work with 2 recharging batteries of
type AA 1.2V that offer very good results or with an external power supply ALFANO (Article ref : A4002)
bound to an included tension battery between 6V and 18V. An energy gauge in the « Welcome menu »
gives the power supply state. When the power supply is too weak (flat batteries or discharged
accumulators), a message warns you.
When this message is displayed, the ADSGPS
switches off automatically at the end of 10 seconds.
Remark :
-
-
Think about checking your energy gauge before beginning a race if this one lasts a long time.
The consumption as well as the speed of discharge of the batteries depends on the quality and type of
battery, that’s why we strongly recommend to change the batteries since the message of prevention.
Using nearly flat batteries can driven to a deterioration of the batteries and can damage your ADSGPS.
Just for your notice, value of completely charged or new batteries :
-
Average consumption in race without backlight :
Average consumption in race with backlight at 50% (value 5) :
Average consumption in race with backlight at 90% (value 9) :
~25 hours of autonomy
~14 hours of autonomy
~10 hours of autonomy
Attention : These values are just given for your notice, it mainly depends on the quality of the batteries.

If there is acceptance of the connection :
you can choose the track to send among those
recorded in the ALFANO-1133 and validate with
‘OK’.
The ALFANO-2055 accepts or refuses the track sent
coming from the ALFANO-1133.
If acceptance of the track :
Successful transfer.
ii.
You can download the track from the Database on our website www.alfano.com
This Database is going to be progressively completed.
In order to complete our Database and so make a maximum of pilots taking advantage of
tracks’ data, you can record your tracks on your computer and then, send them to us via
Internet. We will thus complete the Database progressively.

Slalom
The slalom is an opened track with several passages
on the finish line.
The number of passages on the finish line
(maximum 4) has to be entered while creating the
track.
If, for example, the number of finish line passages =
2 : then we will have the start line, 2 passages on
the finish line corresponding to the partial times
and the 3rd passage on the finish line that will
finally end the session.
The recording of the start line takes place to the
stop.
Take position on the start line and push on the right

In the tracks’ list, the track is displayed with its ID,
example : « 45D8-23G1 »
You can change the name of the track (LAP, TRIAL,
SLALOM), in « Tracks list ». With a pressure of 1
second on the button ‘OK’, you activate the
following window and you repeat the same
operations as when you create a new track.
Note : Only the name can be changed, not the GPS
positions and the ID remains the same.
Note : This option will be available from ADSGPS
version 2.02.
d)
Rally
A rally track has several sectors. The sector can be
a transfer or a special. Only the times of the special
will be memorized in the ADSGPS.
Every sector must be beforehand configurated in
the ADSGPS thanks to the road book. You have to
enter the type of sector (transfer or special), the
time of the run as well as its distance. The ADSGPS
will then give automatically the middle speed in
order to respect the regulation of the rally.
(« Composition »).
16
Copyright  2005 Alfano, S.A. Tous droits réservés.
ADSGPS V2.04
You can make the different sectors scroll with the
top left button corresponding to ‘S’, you can enter
into the sector to configure it with the right top
button corresponding to ‘OK’
Example: you parameter the first sector, you
choose «transfer ».
Once the setting of the sectors ended, you can go
back to the selection menu pushing on the right
below button. Then you select « GPS Pos. Rec. »
and you validate pushing on ‘OK’. Now you can
start the recording of the GPS coordinates of the
different sectors. (Operation that can be done at
another moment)
Once configured, it is necessary to record the GPS
coordinates of the sector (« GPS Pos. Rec. ») that
means :
- the departure of the sector
- the arrival of the sector
- If it is a special, the arrival of the special
is also necessary and possibly 4 partials
and a maximum of 5 speed points, if
you want.
- You can make the different sectors scroll with the
top left button.
- You can make the different points to record scroll
with the left below button.
Once the good sector and the good position
selected (start, arrival, speed, partials, etc.…), you
have two ways to record the GPS positions :
1) Record the GPS positions there while pushing 1
second on ‘OK’, this way, the ADSGPS captures the
GPS positions where it is and memorizes them.
2) Record the GPS positions manually, for it, push 3
seconds on the button ’OK’.
17

ADSGPS V2.04
Nearly all promoters of Rally achieve the road book
indicating the GPS positions for the departures and
arrivals of the transfers and specials.
In this case, it is possible to enter the GPS positions
manually.
Tricks : use « Google Earth » to raise the missing
GPS positions of the points of speed and partials.
Note : the possibility to record the GPS positions
manually will be available from the ADSGPS
version 2.02.
Note : A special behaves like an open circuit + the zone of transfer that follows. The times of the special are
memorized in the ADSGPS, the parameters of the transfer are displayed only for your information.
Example of display of a special in race.
Example of transfer display. On top, you can see
the remaining distance before the finish line of the
sector. To the middle, the remaining time and,
below, the average speed to which the pilot must
run in order to arrive without penalty. The
direction of the arrows indicates to the pilot if he is
early (arrows toward the left) or late (arrows
toward the right). The number of arrows indicating
to the pilot if the advance or the delay is important,
is more or less big.

a. Tracks managing with the software « TrackManager »
This software has been created to help you managing your tracks :
-
Import tracks from an ADSGPS to a computer
Import tracks from a computer to an ADSGPS
Import tracks from the website ALFANO.COM
Create a file of « kml » type to export the track on Google Earth
Export the files « tracks » with internet, Email etc…
Create and modify Rally tracks
b. The ID (identification) of the tracks
For each track created with the ADSGPS or with the software « TrackManager », an ID will be assigned to
every track, this identification will be composed of 8 alphanumeric (example : 58F4-45K6) to be unique, if
several ADSGPS use the same ID track, they will have the advantage to be able to make precise
comparisons that’s to say that the partial times, the points of speed, the lap times will be captured with the
same GPS coordinates.
Note : as soon as a Rally track is modified on the ADSGPS or with the software "TrackManager", another ID
is assigned automatically. Only the Rally tracks can be modified. Regarding the other types of circuit, once
created, only the names can be changed (the structure and the ID don't change).
Other annotation : With the software "TrackManager" it is possible to lock a Rally track. A small closed
padlock will then appear on the right of the name of the Rally.

In this example, S1, S2 and S3 represent the sectors
of a rally circuit.
Once the track selected, you have access to the 6
detailed menus below.
i.
Best
1
Displays the best lap (laptimes) or best session
(time trial, slalom, rally) in absolute.
2 Displays the best lap (time trial) or best session
(time trial, slalom, rally) of the day.
3 Displays the best lap (laptimes) or best session
(time trial, slalom, rally) of the last recording.
A brief pressure on one of the 4 buttons allows to
come back to the previous menu ‘DATA Analysis’.
ii.
Analysis by session / lap by lap
This menu displays all sessions of the track with
their dates and hours of recording, as well as the
best time done during this session.
We will choose hereafter as example the 4th
session of the 29/04.

ADSGPS V2.04
1- For the laptimes
Example :
- 4th session of 29/04
- Display of the partials and points of speed of
the 1st lap. Lap time nr 1 : 2’15’56
- Total of 7 laps (7 bars on the graph)
- Best lap : the 3rd one (2’14’48)
Lap gap/best lap : +1.08
Once your session selected, you have the partial times and points of speed displayed for the first lap of your
session, you can select and can analyze all laps of your session with the help of the two left buttons. The
bar-graphs represent your lap times. The information displayed on the left below indicates your lap time,
and the time displayed on the right below indicates the gap between the selected lap and the best lap.
2- For the Time Trial, Slalom, Rally (special) :
Example :
- 1st session of 29/04
- Display of the partials and points of speed
of the 1st session. Lap time : 2’15’56
- Total of 7 sessions (7 bars on the graph)
- Best session : the 3rd (lowest bar-graph)
- Worse session : the 5th (highest bar-graph)
- 4th session not ended (cross).
Once your session selected, you have the partial times and points of speed displayed for the first session,
you can select and can analyze all sessions with the help of the two left buttons. The bar-graphs represent
your times of session. The information displayed below on the right indicates the maximal speed reached
during the session.
Note : the results of the times of the sessions gotten with the ADSGPS will be logically lower than the times
gotten by the promoters. Indeed, at the time of a departure to the stop (like on lap times), in order to
avoid inopportune startings, the ADSGPS starts after the detection of a speed superior to 5Km/h, it implies
a shift on the official times of the promoters who throw their meters at the same time as the green light
that indicates the authorization to start the vehicle. The time that the pilot reacted and that the vehicle
reaches a speed of 5km/h explains, on the whole, this shift of the times between the ADSGPS and the
promoters.

Erasing of the data
This menu allows to erase the totality of the data
recorded in the ADSGPS. We usually use this menu
when the memory is full. We suggest, beforehand,
to record all data of your ADSGPS on a computer via
Bluetooth. Indeed, the erasing is irreversible, it will
be therefore impossible to recover the data if these
have not been recorded on a computer before the
erasing.
Remark : the erasing of the data doesn't affect the created tracks nor the parameters of the ADSGPS.

created beforehand or downloaded from the
Database of our website.
Remark : if you select a rally, the ADSGPS chooses automatically the nearest rally sector in a ray of 2km. It
does a research of the sectors every 20 seconds and commute automatically on the nearest, so the pilot
only chooses his rally, the selection of the special or the transfer will make itself automatically too.
9- Bluetooth / race display
A brief pressure on the right below button in the
welcome menu activates the Bluetooth, the name
of the peripheral and the pin code/Windows key
access is displayed. It allows to communicate with
your computer in order to download your data. The
downloading is then done since the computer. (See
the note on the data analysis Software on
computer).

a. Performance
A special menu exists to measure the performances of your vehicle.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
0 - 100km/h in seconds
0 - 400 meters in seconds
0 - 1000 meters in seconds
Maximal speed
80 - 120 km/h in seconds
80 - 160 km/h in seconds
Deceleration/braking 100 - 0 km/h in seconds
To activate the menu performance, take place on a
track and put yourself to the stop.
A pressure on the right top button corresponding to
‘OK ‘activates the performance menu, the ADSGPS
then waits for your start.
As soon as a speed superior to 0 is detected, the
ADSGPS calculates the performances of the vehicle.
After that, it is necessary to make an acceleration,
to reach to the minimum 160 km/h, to browse to
the minimum 1000 meters, and to pull up 100 to 0
km/h in order to get THE TOTALITY of the
information.
You can also make this test on shorter distances or with less elevated speeds. The parameters 0 - 400
meters, 0 - 1000 meters and 120 - 160km/h will remain empty if you don't reach the minimal values of
distance and speed.
Note : it is important to do an acceleration and a braking to the limit of the vehicle to get information close
to reality.
b. Road
This menu gives you some values for your information, the speed in real time, the browsed distance as well
as the exhausted time. A pressure of one second on the right button allows to put back the distance or the
time exhausted to zero. A pressure on the left below button comes back to the welcome menu. This
display cannot be used in race mode, no registration is done in this menu.
Remark : This meter is independent from the total
meter of the analysis menu.
Note : after a detection of zero km/h during 5
minutes, the system returns automatically back to
the welcome page.

c. Race display
4 different display types exist actually. Each pressure on the right above button shows a different display.
A brief pressure on the left below button or a waiting of 5 seconds validates your display by default. It will
be possible to change the race display while running with this same right below button.
1st display : the time above is the best time done
since the beginning of the recordings present on
the DATA menu for the same track with the gap on
the last lap time.
The time showed in the middle is the present lap
time, with the number of laps (lap times) or number
of sessions (time trial, slalom, rally).
The time showed below is the partial one, with the
gap in relation to the best partial in absolute.
2nd display : the time above is the best time done
(explained above), on the right side, the speed.
The time showed in the middle = same as the 1st
display.
The time showed below = same as the 1st display.
3rd display : it shows the speed in real time, and is
replaced by the speed detected to the point of
speed recorded when you pass on it. The time of
display of this point of speed is defined in the PEAK
menu. Once this time exhausted, the display
indicates again the speed in real time until the next
passage on a point of speed.
The time showed in the middle = same as the 1st
display.
The time showed below = same as the 1st display.
The 4th display shows the distance browsed since
the departure of the session.
The time showed in the middle = same as the 1st
display.
The time showed below = same as the 1st display.

LEDs
The ADSGPS has 6 LEDs : 2 reds on the extremities and 4 whites centered. The 4 white LEDs ignite 5
seconds when you do the best lap. These 4 same LEDs blink during 5 seconds when you do the best partial.
The 2 red LEDs ignite when you pass on a recorded point of speed. You have the possibility to adjust the
power of the LEDs in the Setup/Display menu.
11-
Update
The update menu allows to do the updating of your ADSGPS. The updatings allow to correct possible
problems but also to improve your ADSGPS (more and more languages will be available, new menus also,
etc.). You need a computer equipped with a Bluetooth peripheral or a key USB/Bluetooth.
Procedure of update :
Go to Update menu through Setup menu.
Download the executable Updater ALFANO available on our website www.alfano.com
New updatings will be available continuously.
Start the executable from your computer and follow the instructions.

Various
A message appears when your batteries are (nearly) flat. Think about checking your battery gauge in the
welcome menu before beginning the recordings in race.
a- Memory
Also think about checking the available memory with the memory gauge in the welcome menu or the
remaining time in the setup menu (--- > rec.) not to saturate the memory during the coming race.
i.
ii.
iii.
iv.
You can record a maximum of 99 sessions by track.
You can record a maximum of 327 sessions on the set of tracks.
You can record a maximum of 99 laps by session in lap times, in case of surpassing, a new
session will start automatically.
(Example : in the case of an Endurance race of 356 laps 3 sessions of 99 laps and the last
one of 59 laps)
The maximum time is of 1 hour by lap for lap times, time trial and slalom.
b- GPS
i.
GPS signal
On switching on your ADSGPS, this one will wait for the GPS signal. The waiting time of receipt depends on
several parameters :
-
The environment in which the ADSGPS is (buildings, forest, free sky, etc…)
The Cold Start or Warm Start : The ADSGPS captures the signal more quickly when it is used regularly,
indeed, more the GPS remains off a long time, more the waiting time before capturing the signal will be
long to the next starting. This is mainly due to the downloading of the GPS (tear-off calendars, etc.)
when this one is off during a long time. This waiting time can therefore vary from some seconds to
several minutes.
ii.
Number of satellites
The GPS captures its real position from 3 satellites. The maximal number of satellites that you can capture
is of 12 (it is only possible to some hours of the day because the satellites are constantly in movement).
More the number of satellites captured is big, more the precision of the position is good, and the times
more accurate. We recommend to take your times from 8 satellites received to the minimum, otherwise
the accuracy of the times cannot be guaranteed.
iii.
Date & hour
As mentioned in the Setup menu, the satellite gives us the GMT hour and date, that’s why it is necessary to
adjust the time zone in the Setup menu (Setting hour/date) according to the position where the ADSGPS is
located.
13-
G Force sensor integrated
The ADSGPS is provided with an integrated 3 axles G Force sensor (this sensor will be activated from the
version ADSGPS 2.04), you will only have to update your ADSGPS to get this version. These data will be able
to be exploited with the Windows SOFTWARE analysis from the version 1.00.
