Velocitek SpeedPuck GPS Speedometer

The all-new SpeedPuck.

The SpeedPuck is a simple GPS speedometer 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 you need.

The SpeedPuck's sunlight-readable, high-contrast LCD screen features 27 mm (1.1") tall digits in a font that's optimized for readability.

This means that if your boat's under 40' in length you'll be able to mount the SpeedPuck on your mast and read it easily from anywhere in the cockpit, even if you don't have perfect vision.

The award-winning SpeedPuck is completely self-contained and can be installed in seconds, without tools.

Instead of using a paddlewheel, the SpeedPuck calculates your speed by measuring the Doppler shift in GPS signals to provide you with an updated reading four times 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 America's Cup World Series teams.

Nobody wants to read a manual, and Velocitek designed a product that anyone can figure out and start using in a few minutes, so you can spend more time on the water.

See What You Can't Feel!

A less than half-knot change in boat speed doesn't feel like much and that's a problem. The SpeedPuck gives you a new speed measurement four times a second.

If you wander into adverse current or your crew on the rail start slacking, the SpeedPuck will tell you right away.

Features:

  • Speed Mode: Displays speed and wind shift indicator updated four times a second.
  • Heading Mode: Displays course over ground and wind shift indicator, updated four times a second.
  • Maximum Speed Mode: Displays maximum 1-second average speed sampled from the 18 Hz GPS receiver.
  • Automatic Shift Tracking: The SpeedPuck's shift tracking algorithm locks on to the mean heading and then shows deviations from that heading with an easy-to-read bar graph. If you tack or jibe, the shift tracker detects it, resets the bar graph and locks onto your new course.
  • Waterproof: Designed for long-term reliability in a saltwater marine environment. Its case back screws off like the lid of a leak-proof water bottle to reveal the watertight USB port cover. The USB port is also sealed from the rest of the device's electronics, providing second and third layers of protection against moisture.
  • Onboard Battery: A rechargeable 30-hour Li-Ion battery gives you a weekend's worth of battery life on a single charge.

Awesome!! June 13, 2012
Reviewer: Patrick from Qu?®bec
Just tested the product for the first time this weekend. Great response and very easy to use. Well made product. You plug it on a computer via USB cable (included) to change settings. The best feature, is that you can download your route on the program GPS Action Replay (included) and watch your replay. You can see how fast you were going at anytime which is really cool. The program also let you import maps (.jpeg) that you can join to your route. You can also use google earth for the same results exept that you don't have replays. Another good feature of the Speedpuck, is that it's portable. No thru hulls, no wiring, so you can take it from a boat to another. Worth every penny.
