I never had the SeeHow unit that would make it more usefull, perfect for what you were using it for, height launch. I still have mine howhigh, I may use it for that myself.
The great thing about the graph from the RAM 3 is, if you study it carefully you can see how fast you climb, to what heights in the entire flight you got, but more importantly when thermaling you can see if you guest correctly about reading air, did you really climb or was it optical illusion, when you stall, how much did it cost you, did the circling you did in the thermal gain you height or not?.............Very useful tool in learning to thermal. Of course flying DLG , much lower, you can see much better what it does so it is less important but I am usually over 1000 ft and there is lots of guessing at that height and higher.
