Ok, thanks for the input.  I was wondering about how often this should be
working.  My experience is with the 5K in the garage that after-runs if it
idles in the driveway for a few minutes...
I think I will test the two sensors I now have in my possession for the
ranges they close. Let you know when I get the data.
Can't wait to take the new toy for a long drive tomorrow to the 'rents!
Have a great holiday!
