Pros: Very Accurate. Easy to use. Small. Cons: None yet. I thought the unit was defective when I received it. After installing the battery it was reading 3,600 RPM in my kitchen. Then I realized there was a Fluorescent light in the kitchen causing the reading. (60Hz x 60 seconds = 3,600).

Pros: I have been using this Trutach tachometer for about two months now and I love it! It is very easy to use. It is very accurate and easy to read while in use. I wish I got this unit years ago! I found my cable driven tachometer in my C-182P was a full 100 RPM off (high) compared to the digital tachmeter! Now I adjust/set my propeller to the Trutach tachometer, not the mechanical tach on the panel. I place my Trutach right on top of the panel and I use a small rubber mat under it, to keep it there while in flight. Cons: So far, there are none! It is expensive but worth it! I wish they could offer it for less money. Great product, easy to use, and is very accurate!
