Use on land or water — it floats! Features SailAssist, including virtual starting line, heading line, countdown timers and tack assist.
Quickly Acquires Satellites
High-sensitivity GPS receiver quickly locks onto GPS signals and tracks your location even in challenging locations, such as deep canyons or under heavy tree cover.
Mark Important Waypoints
Whether it’s a hot fishing spot or a lobster pot, you can mark and store 1,000 waypoints and 100 tracks to navigate to and from time and time again.
SailAssist helps you sail more effectively with heading line and tack assist. Tack assist lets you know when to tack based on whether your boat is getting headed or lifted compared to the boat's optimal tacking angle. For those who like to race, there’s virtual starting line and countdown timer to make sure you cross the starting line at the right time.
