Product Description

The Best Just Got Better

Sailing World called the Classic ProStart Possibly the greatest electronic racing gadget of this decade, and Practical Sailor gave it their prestigious Editor's Choice award. Now we've taken this legendary product to the next level with some major upgrades.

The best distance-to-line tool ever just got better, with crystal clear optics, zero-latency navigation, and a multicolor backlight

After the starting gun, the ProStart immediately switches over to race mode where it will give you speed, heading, max speed, averages and GPS. In addition to providing you real-time, on-the-water data, the ProStart constantly records your speed, heading and position to keep a running log of your most recent 30 hours of sailing.

 Not only is this device a compass, GPS, speed, heading and start timer but it also has the unique feature of telling you your distance to the line.

Once you get back on shore, you can download this data to your Mac or PC and create race replay animations. However if you just want a quick snapshot of your hard days work (bragging rights evidence) you can recall your session's absolute maximum and best 10 second average speeds with the click of a single clearly-marked button.
