Finally the perfect instrument for the perfect start. The ProStart first has a start mode, designed for use as a timer, with the option of synching when you miss that crucial first gun and also gives you the start line position with only two buttons. A simple design, there are two buttons with symbols signifying either the committee boat or the pin. All you need to do is sail to either end and set it, then it will read your distance from the line.

After the starting gun, the ProStart immediately switches over to race mode where it will give you speed, heading, max speed, averages and GPS.

Viper 640: Velocitek Speedpuck

Viper 640: Velocitek Speedpuck Velocitek SpeedPuck
4.5" Diameter, 1" Thickness

The SpeedPuck combines a high-accuracy GPS speedometer, compass and bar graph wind shift indicator in a compact, durable package. It is designed to be mounted on a dinghy or handheld when hiking on a sportboat. The SpeedPuck improves your sailing by allowing you to quantify the effects of boat trim, sail trim, wind shifts and current. No more second guessing yourself!

The SpeedPuck is designed for long-term reliability in a saltwater marine environment. The SpeedPuck's caseback screws on and off like the lid of a leak-proof water bottle to reveal the battery compartment. In addition to this, the battery compartment is completely sealed off from the rest of the device's electronics, providing a second layer of protection against moisture.

Do you hate reading manuals? The SpeedPuck is specifically designed so that almost anyone can figure out how it works in a few minutes without having to read anything.

Main Display Modes of the SpeedPuck:
  • Speedometer: Displays speed, updated at 2Hz.
  • Compass: Displays heading / course over ground, updated at 2Hz.
  • Maximum Speed: Displays maximum speed attained since the device was turned on.
  • Bar Graph Lift / Header Indicator:
    • Automatically locks on to your tack angle
    • Bar graph shows lifts and headers in three degree increments
    • Automatically resets when you tack or jibe
Attachment Options:
The SpeedPuck comes with a lanyard to hang around your neck for "at hand" information. However, if you'd like to mount the SpeedPuck to a flat surface, use Dual Lock material (sold separately). Dual Lock works like super aggressive Velcro; two pieces may be necessary to guarantee a complete hold.

With the proper USB hub, this software allows for one-click GPS data downloading from up to 21 Velocitek devices in one batch, overlaying the information from the units onto Microsoft's Virtual Earth map. It allows you to easily add marks to the display and is compatible with all Velocitek GPS devices.
