The new RaceBOX gives the competitive advantage of Nexus race software in an affordable, compact and robust package. Interfacing with Nexus instruments via the Nexus Network, the RaceBOX provides sailors with a plethora of analytical information to existing Nexus instruments. A micro-processor facilitates processing abilities that were previously only available with a stand-alone computer.
Replacing a fragile onboard computer, the racer can now load polar diagrams directly into the processor from a SD card or USB. Calculations of Polar or Target Boat Speed are then displayed by Nexus instruments where they are most useful � on deck. Coupled with GPS it will also give time-to-burn and line bias on the start. Furthermore the RaceBOX records data to the memory cards that can be easily removed for post-race download and analysis.
