New and Improved
Velocitek is happy to announce the launch of the long awaited Velocitek SC-1 GPS Race Computer. The Velocitek SC-1 harnesses the power of GPS to give performance dinghy and sportboat sailors the functionality of a complete instrument suite including:
• Speed, VMG and Heading updated every half-second
• Start timer
• Ability to display any two measurements simultaneously on a multi-line display
The SC-1 installs in seconds and does not require any external wiring or through hull transducers.
The SC-1 also keeps a rolling 40 hour record of speed, heading and position that can be downloaded for replay and analysis on a PC. The SC-1 is seamlessly compatible with Google Earth and GPS Action Replay.
Feedback received through the Sailing Anarchy forum on Velocitek’s S5, S10 and Speedcompass models played a major part in the SC1’s design. For example:
“Why not a dual readout” - Gruntfuttock
SC-1 now has a two line display that lets you see any two modes simultaneously.
“Only 2 digits on the display? Seems like for high performance sportboats you'd want 3...” - Buford.
Both SC-1’s display lines now have three digits.
“If you could enter the wind direction directly, by scrolling a number until you get to the right compass heading, it might be simpler” - Emu
SC-1 VMG mode now works exactly like this. What do you think?
