Snavy, that is way off.
if you are doing a simple 0-100 run it has a real life accuracy +/- 0.01 seconds. The internal accuracy of the unit is even better +/- 0.001. (The real life accuracy if your wondering is the worst cse scenario taking into account temperature, vibration and other elements that affect an accelorometer). ....they are very acurate units for measuing things like 0-100 and 1/4 mile times.
when it comes to horsepower it has a real life accuracy of 3HP. readings however, will be lower on a g tech than on a dyno as the g tech accounts for aerodynamic drag due to the motion of the car.
I have one, and I can vouch for its accuracy...autospeed has also done tests on, and they mentioned how accurate the unit was compared to $10000 equipment.
