I have an old TrackIR about 7 years old. It is the trackIR 5

Will it work just as well as the new trackIR 5?

In other words.. is the hardware the same and all I will have to do is get the updated software?
I want new technology but trying to have to spend for a new one.

It should be fine as long as the hardware is functional. Go to and download the newest version to get started!.
