If you race sailboats, the benefits of an accurate speedometer are probably already fairly obvious to you. Even still, you might not sail with a speedo because you can’t be bothered to drill holes in your hull and wire-up a paddlewheel transducer. 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 twice a second. The SpeedPuck never needs to be calibrated and maintains uniform accuracy at all speeds.
The Speedpuck is Simple and Easy to use with a large display that can be read in the toughest sailing conditions, this is the only gps instrument you need for sailboat racing and training. One of the greatest things about the speed puck is that it can be easily taken from boat to boat unlike hardwired transducer units. The speed puck is a great tool for any sailor looking to sail fast!

The SpeedPuck’s sunlight-readable high-contrast LCD screen features 27mm (1.1”) tall digits in a font that’s optimized for readability. This means that if your boat’s under 40ft long 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 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.
The SpeedPuck’s 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 on to your new tack.
All this happens 100% automatically; you don’t need to press any buttons to make it happen. The SpeedPuck constantly crunches the numbers for you in the background so that, whenever you happen to glance at the instrument, you can see how far you’re up or down.
