SuperTracker II - What is it? How can I buy one?
The SuperTracker II is the 2nd generation digital track display for Commodore (and most clones) disk drives.  The first SuperTracker was created by Jim Drew and Wes Wiese back in the mid-late 80's.  That version had a LED display for the track (including half track) and LEDs for density, along with a write protect bypass switch, drive reset switch, and drive 8/9 selector switch.  The SuperTracker II was created by Jim Drew and uses a OLED screen instead of LEDs, showing the motor state, write protect state, track (including half-track), density, and number of syncs on a track.  There is also an optional AUX output that can be used as a drive 8/9 switch or switch between normal CBM DOS and JiffyDOS (if you have the multi-ROM JiffyDOS drive ROM).  The SuperTracker II offers the ability to record and play back up to 1500 changes on the track, density, and number of syncs.  Unlike the original SuperTracker, the SuperTracker II is a simple plug-in board that sits between a VIA chip and the disk drive's motherboard.  No extra wires are required.  The optional AUX output can be connected to the drive 8/9 jumper pad or JiffyDOS enable pin.

You can purchase the SuperTracker II from the CBMSTUFF.COM online store:
