Velocitek - ProStart and Speedpuck
Velocitek builds high-performance GPS enabled sailing instruments.
Their devices are designed to give you the critical tactical
information you need, when you need it. Velocitek designers
have worked hard
over several generations of products to produce easy to use
instruments that help you keep your head out of the boat and
in the race.
If you race sailboats, the benefits of an accurate speedometer
are probably already fairly obvious to you. Even still, you might
not sail with a speedo because you can’t be bothered to drill
holes in your hull and wire-up a paddlewheel transducer. Or maybe
you already have a through-hull speedo but you’re
sick of the transducer getting fouled and you’re never
quite sure if the instrument is properly calibrated. The award
winning SpeedPuck is completely self contained and can be installed
in seconds, without tools. Instead of using
a paddlewheel, the SpeedPuck calculates your speed by measuring
the Doppler shift in GPS signals to provide you with an updated
reading every half-second. The SpeedPuck never needs to be calibrated
and maintains uniform accuracy at all speeds.
The ProStart is specifically designed
from the ground up to give you the easiest, most accurate distance
to line measurements ever. Setting the line is as simple as telling
your crew to press the boat button as you sail by the RC and then
the pin button
as you sail by the pin. Once you’ve pinged both ends of
the line, the ProStart uses the latest WAAS-augmented GPS technology
to spit out an
accurate distance to line measurement every half-second.
