• 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.

• Easy on the eyes. The ProStart's sunlight-readable high-contrast LCD screen features 30mm (1.2") tall digits in a font that's optimized for readability. This makes the instrument easy to read with a quick glance and helps you keep your attention focused outside the boat.

• 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.
