The ProStart is specifically designed, from
the ground up, to give you the easiest, most accurate distance to line
measurements ever. Setting the line is as simple as telling your crew to
press the boat button as you sail by the RC and then the pin button as
you sail by the pin.
Once you’ve pinged both ends of the line,
the ProStart uses the latest WAAS-augmented GPS technology to spit out
an accurate distance to line measurement every half-second.
Sailing World called the ProStart Possibly
the greatest electronic racing gadget of this decade,” and Practical
Sailor gave it their prestigious Editors Choice award.
