just had my ultrex 'go down'. first, it refused to spot lock... then it wouldn't turn right, unless I jogged left first. then, the foot pedal wouldn't depress (turning left)... finally, the head, without a foot on the pedal, would do a super slow turn right...all the way right.
doing some investigation on the net, seems it's a computer board/chip issue. sounds like I might be waiting a while for repairs.
guess it's a good thing my old foretrex didn't sell and is sitting in the garage just waiting to be changed over.
all that cool electronic stuff is GREAT until it doesn't work. and then 'analog' saves the day!
