Big numbers. Instant installation:
The SpeedPuck is a simple GPS speedometer that was created for sailing but can be used in any sport or situation where you want to see your speed easily. The SpeedPuck has big numbers that are easy to read, it can be installed very quickly and it gives you the accuracy and responsiveness youre looking for.
Easy to read:
The SpeedPucks sunlight-readable, high-contrast LCD screen features 27mm (1.1") tall digits in a font thats optimized for readability. This means that if your boats under 40ft long youll be able to mount the SpeedPuck on your mast and read it easily from anywhere in the cockpit, even if you dont have perfect vision.
Accuracy You Can Count On:
The award winning SpeedPuck is completely self contained and can be installed in seconds, without tools. Instead of using a paddle wheel, the SpeedPuck calculates your speed by measuring the Doppler shift in GPS signals to provide you with an updated reading twice a second. The SpeedPuck never needs to be calibrated and maintains uniform accuracy at all speeds.
The SpeedPuck uses the same GPS technology as the Velocitek ProStart, which is used by all Americas Cup World Series teams.
See what you cant feel:
A less than half-knot change in boatspeed doesnt feel like much and thats a problem. The SpeedPuck gives you a new speed measurement every half-second. If you wander into adverse current or your crew on the rail start slacking, the SpeedPuck will tell you right away.
Hit the Water. Now:
Nobody wants to read a manual. We designed a product that anyone can figure out and start using in a few minutes, so you can spend more time on the water.

AUTOMATIC SHIFT TRACKING.
The SpeedPucks 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 onto your new tack.
The SpeedPuck is designed for long-term reliability in a saltwater marine environment. The device's case back screws off like the lid of a leak-proof water bottle to reveal the battery compartment.
The SpeedPuck's battery compartment is also sealed off from the rest of the device's electronics, providing a second layer of protection against moisture.
