Nous sommes cinq de mon club, le Spéléo Club de Grenoble (dit SGCAF), à postuler pour avoir des Carte-X pour disto DXT: Gilles P. (P a l l u e), Baudouin L. ( L i s m o n d e), Pierre M. (M e t z g e r), Donald A. (A c c o r s i), et moi même, Yann C. (C a i r o). You can count on 5 members of the Speleo Club de Grenoble (said SGCAF), for X-boards.
I'm surprise that so few french people ask for X-Board. May be it' a lack of information. I will see with the French Speleo Federation, FFS, and ask for how we can spread information.

Excellent! We are now up to 41 X-boards! 9 more to go before we meet Beat's minimum!

Who can debate on something like this? If you got the money, and you survey, you absolutely NEED this! It will save you much more time and you will have more to write home about on every survey!

"If you got the money" was the part under debate, not the desire for the DistoX!

I truely understand : ) I have the same issue sometimes. However, I know this device will make my surveying life so much easier and since I already have a Disto 210XT it makes it all the more worthwhile.

No simply the information has not been fwd, maybe because at the time this thread was advanced study because the Disto choice was not secured.
Now that the DXT is the winner, I just fwd the info on the French mailing list :-)

Note also many active french people already have a DistoX and since many years for some ...

Excellent! I also got a confirmation email from Benoit Martinez saying that he wants 2 X-boards!

This puts us up to 46 boards!! We only need 4 more!!!

If you are rethinking the Disto X and would like to cancel or whatever please let me know so I dont consider you a for sure buyer. As of right now all 46 are for sure buyers. There are still 3 that are unsure which I will contact to find out if they are or are not going to buy an X board. I will post a list of those who I thought were not certain in there orders.
