I don't understand the puck discussion. I know you can buy parts and pieces but really so long as you already have the 3 line display you are just buying the control module and antenna.
Also, there is a new software upgrade that allows you to map your slalom course so you don't need any magnets. Pretty handy, especially if you ski the same course all of the time.
The discussion is simply a price thing. Trying to save a couple hundred dollars, potentially.
