Yes it has been there for years. I have it saved on Camel Camel Camel with a very ridiculous price watch amount to alert me the minute it goes on sale.

An interesting thought ... If the Atlas Elite is actually still a product in development, and if it had reached the stage of beta testing, one would have to think that George would be one of the beta testers and would have had an Elite in his possession. It could now potentially be in the hands of someone who didn't sign the NDA. I wonder how Acurite would handle a situation like this.

My guess is that the Elite is a dead project, but when George was still posting here, any time someone suggested that he would challenge it. He was a wealth of knowledge about Acurite products and I am sorry he is no longer with us.

A lot of vendors list their products on Amazon before they are available to have it ready. What happened is that at one point you could search for it and it would show up as coming soon. But then it was marked to be hidden as the release for the product changed. But if someone saved the link, then you can still get to it. I saved it, and that is how I'm still able to pull it up.

It never had a price shown. But based on the Atlas pricing I think it would likely be much higher than $400. Just a hunch.

It was meant as direct competition for the 24hr VP2. They even made the design similar.
