New V2 upgrades
The new V2 design features a new button panel, new higher contrast LCD mounted on a soft silicon pad to survive the toughest conditions. A new amber red backlight allows the unit to carry its duty in the night sailings. PC connectivity is now enhanced with the latest generation Bluetooth low energy transceiver (BLE).
GPS speedo and compass
The NS-START Pocket V2 is a all-in-one multi constellation GPS receiver that delivers precise and reliable heading information to help you to tack and jibe at the most suitable times. The user settings let you decide the required sensitivity based on your boat, your style, and the current weather conditions.
The trip distance and the maximum speed can also be accessed.
The easiest count-down timer
Press the timer button to get the 5 minute sequence started. Press it again, and it will re-synchronize to 4 minutes or 1 minute.
Hundred of hours of sailing data can be recorded and transferred wirelessly through Bluetooth for post-races analysis.
Distance to the start line
The NS-START Pocket V2 start line distance function relies on a highly accurate GPS to pinpoint exactly where you are relative to the line.
A +/- sign indicates clearly which side of the line you are.
Unique bow offset gives the exact distance from your bow to the line.
Ends can be 'pinged' whilst traveling in any direction.
Boat/pin end buttons: dedicated buttons make storing the start line easy and intuitive.
The embedded firmware of the NS-START Pocket V2 is upgradable thanks to its embedded bluetooth transceiver.
