Speed Reader - Velocitek Marine Electronics
Velocitek makes sure data is always close at hand.
Handheld marine electronics can provide an essential backup to permanently mounted gear. That aspect is certainly part of the appeal for a product called Velocitek S10 http://www.velocitek.com/, a portable, waterproof—but not entirely economical ($250)—speed gauge that can measure a vessel’s speed over the ground or its velocity made good toward a waypoint using an internal Trimble GPS receiver and processors. And [IMGCAP(1)]the S10’s more expensive sibling, the SC-1 ($399), purports to deliver a vessel’s speed, heading, and velocity made good with the information updated every half-second. We say "purports" as we haven’t tested the SC-1.
