The Velocitek Prostart just got better! Rated as the best distance-to-line tool the Prostart now comes with crystal clear optics, zero-latency navigation, and a multi colour backlight.
The Prostart will put you on the line at the gun without any guess work. The Prostart gives you hard data to show you where you are, even if you can't see the end of the line.
All you need to do is sail to the committee boat, hit a button, sail to the pin, hit a button, and then activate the Prostart when the countdown starts. The Prostart then shows you how far away you are from the line, along with where you will be if you keep sailing at your current pace.
Sailing World called the Classic ProStart possibly the greatest electronic racing gadget of this decade, and Practical Sailor gave it their prestigious Editor's Choice award. Now Velocitek have built on the original model taking this legendary product to the next level with some major upgrades.
Highly Visible in All Conditions - A bonded Gorilla® Glass display with razor sharp white on black digits shows up crystal clear through your favourite polarised sunglasses. A user selectable white / red LED backlight takes care of night sailing or other low light situations.
Zero-Latency Aerospace-Grade Navigation - A powerful 72 channel, 18Hz multi-constellation GPS receiver combined with a 100Hz solid-state 6-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU) and a patented high-precision 3-axis geomagnetic sensor gives you accurate distance, speed and heading information with zero lag time.
Better off the water too - 100-Hour Li-Ion Battery - A battery that you can charge using any USB port or phone charger and then forget about for the rest of the week gives you one less thing to worry about on race days.
High-Speed, High-Capacity Data Logging - The ProStart records position, time, course over ground, speed over ground, magnetic heading and heel angle four times per second. The 8GB onboard flash memory is enough room for 1000 hours of sailing data.
Replay Anywhere - When you plug the new ProStart into any Mac, PC or Linux computer it shows up as an external drive with your track files on it. You can drag and drop these files into browser based replay software like Charted Sails or Njord Analytics, without having to install anything on your computer.
