Now you can experience real-time, natural, 3D view control in your favourite racing and flight simulation games – all by moving your head.
The NaturalPoint TrackIR 5 takes your favourite games to astonishing new levels of realism and immersion.

Fully adjustable and ultra-precise tracking
The TrackIR 5 packs the ability to focus on 1/150th of a pixel, That means the TrackIR 5 provides the most precise head tracking solution on the market – by a long shot.

If you’ve clicked on this tab, you’re obviously looking for a reason or two on why you should shop for your gaming goodies at Gamer Gear Direct, rather than those other online stores.
And we’ll (not so) humbly say there are SEVEN reasons we think you should shop with us and not hand over your hard-earned cash at one of those big box retailers like Harvey Norman or JB Hi-Fi.
REASON #1: 100% customer satisfaction GUARANTEED (if you’re not happy then neither are we – simple as that)
We’ll bend over backwards to ensure you are 100% happy and satisfied with your order and our world-class customer service. We want you to rave about your experience with us to your friends and family.
But we know that’ll only happen if we treat every customer like you’re the most important customer in the world. And you are! Without you we wouldn’t be in this business. We’ve only got to where we are today by treating our customers to a high level of service that you’ll rarely find online.
We’ll literally bend over backwards to ensure your experience with us is one you’ll shout about to your neighbour or mates at work. See, we’re not one of those big box electronics stores with a multi-million marketing budget. Those companies treat you like a number. Because they can afford to! They’ve got money coming out of their ears.
We’re different. We’re a small Aussie owned and operated business. Every single potential customer that hits our website is precious to us (that includes you). So, again, we’ll do everything we can to make sure you’re over the moon with your Gamer Gear Direct shopping experience.
Do you think Harvey Norman can promise that kind of service?
Probably not. In fact, I’d bet my house they won’t. But look, you don’t have to take my word for it. Here’s what our customers are saying about us…
Ashley Woolnough says: ‘I want to say a huge thank you to Blake and the team at Gamer Gear Direct. The service has been absolutely impeccable from the moment I first looked at items to the moment they were delivered. I bothered Blake quite a bit, but nothing was too much trouble and he went above and beyond to help me. 5-star service’.
Luke H. had this to say: ‘Amazing, Excellent Service. I'm very impressed. Well informed staff and good quality selection of Sim Racing gear. Staff even went above and beyond to answer a query regarding whether a certain set of pedals would properly mount to a specific cockpit by testing it themselves on my behalf. Delivery is ridiculous fast and free. Less than 24 hour delivery to Sydney NSW which is impressive. Definitely my go to place for all future gear'.
And this from Brendan: ‘Hands down the best online supplier in Australia atm. Customer service is above an beyond any other Australian company. Blake is always happy to try an keep the customer as happy as possible an with the best deal. I will be back...a forever shop and first stop when hunting any sim upgrade.’
That’s not an exhaustive list, either. There are plenty more happy customer stories we could share with you. But let’s move on to reason number two…
REASON #2: Five-star customer support
We’re around to support you and help you out with your questions and queries between normal business hours (Mon to Fri, 9am to 5pm).
We understand a lot of our customers (like you) are busy individuals.
Sometimes, you’ve only got time to peruse our website when you’re sitting down on the couch, chilling out after a hard day at work (maybe with a cold beverage in hand).
If you need a hand with anything, or you’ve got a question. Just tap on the live chat widget (at the bottom right of screen), email us (email@example.com) or call on (03) 9961 0240.
REASON #3: Shop with confidence thanks to our 30 day return policy
The moment you buy anything (yes, anything!) from Gamer Gear Direct you’re automatically covered by our 30-day return policy.
Buy today and if your item is not performing as it should or is faulty just return inside those first 30 days, in 'as new' condition for a refund or exchange. Please note that our return policy does not cover 'change of mind' purchases.
On top of our 30-day return policy, you’re also covered by a manufacturers’ warranty. Every product we sell is covered by a MINIMUM 6-month warranty (most are covered by a 1 year or better warranty).
When you buy from us, you’re buying top quality, brand name products (no crap ‘grey import’ products here), that’ll do exactly what they say on the box.
You'll find more details on our return policy HERE.
REASON #4: We’re competitive on our prices. If you see a Gamer Gear Direct product cheaper online, contact us and we’ll see if we can work out a deal
That doesn’t mean we’ll always beat the competition on price. Some of the big-name stores bulk up big time on products. We’re still competitive, but may not have the margin to beat them.
That aside, our prices are easily some of the cheapest you’ll find online. Plus, when you bundle several items together, we’re more than happy to chat about a bundle discount
Hit us up and we’ll chat more about price (you can open the chat widget at the bottom right of screen and start a conversation).
REASON #5: Fast shipping Australia wide
When you’re shopping online, you want your order delivered fast, right? We understand. That’s why 99% of our orders are shipped within one to two business days from the time you order.
Your order will usually arrive at your doorstep within 3 to 5 business days from the day you ordered. Doesn’t matter whether you order a 50kg racing simulator cockpit or a mousepad, we’ll make sure you get your order in super quick time.
We use the fastest couriers in the country to make sure you get your order in record time.
You can track your order the entire time, too. As soon as your order is on the way we’ll send you an email with tracking details, so you can keep your eye on where your order is the entire time.
Of course, if you have any questions or queries about your order simply email or call us and we’ll help you in any way we can.
REASON #6: Every product from Gamer Gear Direct is covered by a manufacturer warranty
Nothing worse than buying something online and it’s faulty, right?
We feel you.
That’s exactly why every item we stock is covered by a minimum 6-month warranty.
If the product you ordered from us doesn’t work right, simply return it to us and we’ll get it fixed for you under warranty.
Or if we can’t have it fixed, we’ll provide you with a replacement item as soon as possible.
REASON #7: Safe and 100% secure checkout
Our shopping cart is fitted with SSL encryption.
What the hell does that mean, you ask?
Well, that simply means all your data is 100% secure when you shop on the Gamer Gear Direct website.
We don’t save or share any of your payment details. Nor are those precious details stored anywhere on our website.
So, there you have it. There are our 7 big reasons on why you should buy all your sim goodies from us and not the competition.
Remember, we are always happy to chat with you at any time. You can open a live chat (at bottom right of screen). Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call on (03) 9961 0240.
The device works on Linux. It was pretty jittery, but I was able to pretty much solve that too. However, what I wasn't expecting is that once I actually started flying with it I started feeling motion sickness after about 30 minutes. I think it's mostly due to the constant motion of the image on the screen, as it's not really practical to keep your head perfectly still. I suppose I could say it increased the realism of the simulation, as I get sick on small planes too. But, I was not looking for that type of realism! :)
Omg! All I needed was a few minutes to know this was the product for me. I spend a lot of time with simulator games, having well over several hundreds hours spent with them just since this summer. I have really latched on to the simulator genre and TrackIr 5 was the next step in this admiration! It raises the immensity level of whatever you’re doing to 10+! I don’t know what kept me from purchasing this product for so long. For the price and complexity it is a miracle in immersive simulation gameplay!
Update 13 Feb 2020: Now that I've used this a while, I can say that TrackIR 5 is easier to get confused, compared to TrackIR 3. For example, even if I lift my hand to scratch my nose, the tracking will go crazy cuz of the light relfected off my watch glass. I don't know if it'll go crazy for people wearing prescription glasses though, I don't wear them while gaming.For TrackIR 3, I can do that without breaking the track. I can even puff on a cigarette with a long drag (lighting up the end) and it still wouldn't break the track. For TrackIR 5, the track would go crazy.Original review:============Actually my old TrackIR 3 (circa 2002) still works. I purchased this TrackIR 5 because some games I have do not register my TrackIR 3 as a head-tracker. Apparently the devs assumed everyone has a TrackIR 4 or newer.My first disappointment - old TrackIR software (v3.xx. v4.xx) doesn't work on it. I was kind of hoping it would (cuz I wanted to track with only 1 dot on my gaming goggles), but it doesn't. The newer TrackIR v5.xxx software doesn't detect my old TrackIR 3 (previously tested a few years ago), and it needs 3 dots to track. So, TrackIR 5 needed v5.xx software to run.Setup was a little different, but easily and quickly done. I quickly set up a profile for Eurotruck and tested - works fine. I am so used to TrackIR 3 (Pitch and Yaw ONLY) that on the new TrackIR 5, I disabled roll, X and Y axis. I kept Z on, cuz it's cool to be able to "lean into the screen" to see something up cl.
As someone who is not a fan of immersive VR goggles this is perfect. I have a large monitor so can feel immersed into the game but not totally isolated from my surroundings. Plus I am less likely to get dizzy from motion sickness with this device. I can simply glance away from the monitor. This device although older technology really took gaming to the next level. Perfect for Elite Dangerous or DCS World, etc. A great addition to my Warthog Hotas, also new.Btw if you don't like wearing a cap or using a headset, buy a thin plastic hair band and clip the device to that. Works great.
As another reviewer wrote below, TrackIR is a game-changer if you do any kind of flight-simming. I use it exclusively for DCS World and some X-Plane and it's the best you're gonna get without investing in some clunky VR headgear. It works as anticipated and adds quite a bit of environmental awareness in the cockpit. The software portion of the product lets you fine-tune the headset, which is a must, but once you're set, you're all ready to go.I went with the slightly cheaper head-clip version, which simply slides onto the brim of a baseball cap (the clip is quite delicate as people have said, thin plastic and what not). Three reflective tape surfaces from your brim deliver the movements to the actual IR receiver, which loosely clasps to the top of your monitor. That's it! I have the TrackIR software running before I start DCS - neither software has had an issue with the other.I was up and running (including fine-tuning) within the hour and was immediately amazed at how quickly it changed my flying. I'm not relying on external views in DCS for landing much anymore - it's all in-cockpit - which says a lot of how much the headgear really adds.So ya, highly recommended if you do any serious flying at your computer and have the money to spare.
