    If the wire embedded in race tracks around the world is compatible with any transponder then I remain surprised that someone hasn't tried to oust AMB. That market is just begging for a new player with a more customer-friendly business model.

    Aside from their cost I never understood why people race them.

    That is impressive given the software writing track record of AMB.

    I think the TrackHQ brain trust is smart enough to do it. So what do we call it, TRANS949, Alvakasponder, BAWARECAbeacon?

    Evidently the loop is a pretty standard item. Westhold claims to have a hybrid system that can read other manufacturers transponders though it is not listed on the product page.

    Any idea how much the hybrid hard-wired transponder (for cars) costs?

    I don’t think it is a hybrid transponder. I believe it is the timing system that has the ability to read other manufacturers transponders. Could be wrong though.
