Yeah I just got the pro clip and it doesn't help any of the limit issues. Really disappointed since the pro clip is 50 bucks. I thought it would get me to at least that 90 degree of center point. Frankly, trackir just isn't designed to work well past 60 degrees or so which is about as far as someone with a fixed monitor is going to look anyway. Maybe with all this VR stuff, they'll upgrade to some kind of Google Cardboard inspired headset that can track your movements all the way around like an oculus or HTC Vibe headset.
I think the only practical application for what I have going is for instrument training since you'd only be looking around the dash anyway but meh, you might as well just forget about it.
I'm not planning on oculus anytime soon, but it's probably a much better experience. 700 bucks (when you count tax and shipping) should really get you more than that. I think I'll wait it out for the second generation, price drop, or another company like HTC or samsung making a better alternative. I mean ******* christ a regular samsung phone already has better resolution. There's no telling with the galaxy s8 will be, and I'm sure VR headsets will catch up.
If anyone else has similar equipment and knows trinusVR well, please let us know if you find a way to use the phone's internal sensors for the look feature, cuz if you can find a way, that would be about a 90% solution as an Oculus alternative. The only thing it wouldn't track is head position, only angle.
I know's there's a way cuz the internal phone tracking works amazingly well for all the other cardboard/gearVR style stuff. I'm just not sure if there's a software solution currently available to get it to work well with trinus and FSX. If anyone has any programmer friends who can figure that out, that would be awesome.
