 • High visibility in all conditions: A bonded Gorilla® Glass display with razor sharp white on black digits shows up crystal clear through your favorite polarized sunglasses. A user selectable white / red LED backlight takes care of night sailing or other low light situations.

• High visibility in all conditions: 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.

• 75-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.

• Start-specific user interface. Velocitek's number one goal in designing the ProStart was to make sure that the product would never undermine your crew's performance with unnecessary distractions during the pre-start. The front surface of the ProStart is reserved for the three most important start-related buttons: the pin, boat and gun buttons. The large size of these buttons makes them easy to press, even with gloved hands and easy to find in the midst of chaos.

• Tactile Feedback. The ergonomic design of the Velocitek ProStart makes it's large buttons easy to press with one hand even when your boat is pitching around. The spring-loaded mechanical buttons also provide positive tactile feedback. This lets you know that you've successfully pinged a mark without having to look at the ProStart's screen.

• Waterproof. The ProStart has been tested to IPX-8, the most rigorous industrial water-resistance standard. This means that you can count on the ProStart to survive wipeout after epic wipeout.

• Mount the ProStart anywhere. Each ProStart comes packaged with a mounting cradle that can be bolted to the ProStart Mast Mounting Bracket or directly to a bulkhead. The cradle is also compatible with any bracket designed for the venerable Tacktick Micro Compass.

• Second Line of Defense. Velocitek do not recommend opening up the ProStart's battery compartment on the water. On the other hand, they understand that you're unlikely to follow this recommendation so the ProStart's USB connector is covered with a silicone plug and sealed the batery terminals with epoxy; a few stray water droplets won't ruin your day.

• Snap and swap. The ProStart's sealed battery compartment can be opened without tools. This allows you to swap in a fresh set of standard rechargeable or disposable AA cells in mere seconds.
