Is the Prism GPS based?
No. The Prism is strictly a magnetic compass.
Does the Prism have a timer?
No. The Prism does not have a timer. We wanted to make the easiest electronic compass to use and the input we received from pros and Olympians in developing the Prism was that a timer was OK to leave out for two reasons. 1) Most sailors wear a watch or mount one on the mast or boom. 2) Having to switch from timer to compass and back to timer in pre-start to take a wind shot is really inconvenient on a boat with 1 – 3 crew.
Does the Prism have a backlight?
No. The Prism does not have a backlight.
