The Velocitek Shift tacitcal compass helps you keep track of wind shifts so you can always sail on the lifted tack. This state-of-the-art sailing instrument uses a 9-axis solid state sensor to completely track the orientation of your boat in three dimensions. The result is aerospace-grade heading indication that is smoother and more responsive than any other tactical compass on the market.
The Shift's 38mm (1.5") high digits can be easily read from over 30m (100 ft) away. The high-contrast LCD will also show up crystal clear through your polarized sunglasses, and includes an LED backlight for night racing.
A solar panel built into the top of the Velocitek Shift keeps the rechargeable battery juiced-up and ready for action. The shift is rugged and waterproof to 3m (9 ft). Because it doesn't use any GPS technology, the Shift is class legal where gps is prohibited, and a static-cling legalizer label is available when necessary to hide the wind shift indicator.

Velocitek Shift Features
Big Numbers: The Shift's 38mm (1.5") high digits can be easily read from over 30m (100 ft) away. The Shift's high contrast LCD will also show up crystal clear through your polarized sunnies.
Solid-state 9-Axis AHRS: The Shift uses a solid-state 9-axis Attitude Heading Reference System (AHRS). The result is aerospace-grade heading indication that is smoother and more responsive than any other tactical compass on the market.
The ProStart's Timer: When you hear or see any type of start signal just hit the GUN button. If the timer isn’t running, it will start. If the timer is running it will sync. Once the timer is sync'ed you can independently adjust minutes while the seconds keep counting down.
Solar powered: The top of the Shift is dedicated to an enormous 26mm x 124mm (1" x 5") solar panel. This keeps the Shift juiced-up and ready for action.
Replaceable battery: Even the best lithium batteries don't last forever. The Shift was designed to make it easy for you to replace the product's battery yourself.
Waterproof:The Shift is designed to withstand continuous immersion at 3m (9 ft). Every single unit that comes off the assembly line is pressure-tested before it ships.
Class Legal: The Shift doesn't use any GPS technology and it even comes with a static-cling Legalizer Label for use in the most conservative one design classes.
