Velocitek ProStart GPS 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.

Viking Marine are very pleased to bring you the Velocitek ProStart GPS. This performance dinghy / racing yacht GPS 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 Race Committee and then the pin button as you sail by the end of line buoy / pin.

Once you've pinned 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. Velocitek PROSTART ~ giving you a Reliable Start

During the hectic start of a yacht race - the start signals have a way of going off at the least convenient times. With the Velocitek ProStart, when you hear or see any type of start signal ~ just hit the GUN button. Even if the timer isn't running, it will start. If the timer is running it will sync.

So what happens if your Velocitek PROSTART is synced to the wrong signal? No problem, the ProStart lets you independently adjust the number of minutes on the timer while the seconds keep on rolling.

Velocitek PROSTART ~ Speed and Handling

Ten seconds after your start, the Velocitek ProStart automatically switches to showing your GPS speed (SOG) and heading (COG). The accuracy and responsiveness of the speed measurements make the Velocitek ProStart an unparalleled tool for optimizing your boatspeed.

 Since SOG and COG describe your course over the bottom (where the marks are anchored) the ProStart is also an extremely powerful tool for determining the influence of current on your performance. When you cross a tideline, the numbers on the ProStart jump and you can instantly see how favorable the new current is.

Velocitek PROSTART ~ Automatic shift tracking

The ProStart's shift tracker locks on to the mean heading for your tack and then shows deviations from that heading with an easy-to-read bar graph. If you tack or jibe again, the shift tracker detects this, resets the bar graph and locks on to your new tack. All this happens 100% automatically, you don't need to press any buttons to make it happen. The ProStart constantly crunches the numbers for you in the background so that, whenever you happen to glance at the instrument, you can see how far you're up or down.

We all want to be the FASTEST ! You won't find a single sailor, be it an Opti kid or seasoned pro who doesn't get a kick out of seeing how fast they went. With the ProStart you can recall your session's absolute maximum and best 10 second average speeds with the click of a single clearly-marked button.
