The NS-START.Pro is a all-in-one multi constellation GPS receiver (GPS+GLONASS+GALILEO+BEIDOU) digital speedo compass. It 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 (High / Medium / Low) based on your boat, your style, and the current weather conditions.
GPS speedo and compass
The over ground speed of the boat as measured by the GPS receiver is provided with several levels of sensitivity (High / Medium / Low). The trip distance, the GPS heading and the maximum speed can also be accessed.
