Velocitek Shift Solar-Powered Compass

$699.00 each

SKU: 49-0052 Categories: ,

Product Description

The Velocitek Shift digital compass is an important tactical tool that helps you stay in phase with intuitive wind shift tracking, tracking your boat’s orientation in three dimensions and giving accurate and rapid readings. Port and starboard headings can be quickly recorded, with the display indicating lifts and headers.


  • See shifts at a glance: Big numbers and bold arrows make it easy to see how much you’re headed or lifted.
  • A user interface that works under pressure: Oversized buttons allow you to instantly store port and starboard reference angles on the fly.
  • Big Digits: The Shift’s 38mm (1.5") high digits can be easily read from over 30m (100 ft) away. The Shift’s high contrast LCD will also show up crystal clear through your polarized sunnies.
  • 9-Axis solid-state sensor: The Shift uses a combination of solid-state accelerometers, gyroscopes and magnetic sensors to completely track the orientation of your boat in 3 dimensions. The result is aerospace-grade heading indication that is smoother and more responsive than any other tactical compass on the market.
  • The ProStart’s Timer: When you hear or see any type of start signal, just hit the GUN button. If the timer isn’t running, it will start. If the timer is running it will sync. Once the timer is synced, you can independently adjust minutes while the seconds keep counting down.
  • Backlight: The Shift has a red LED backlight that won’t ruin your night vision.
  • Battery: The battery is good for over 60 hours of sailing in the dark.
  • Shift Solar Panel Solar powered: The top of the Shift is dedicated to an enormous 26mm x 124mm (1" x 5") solar panel. This keeps the Shift juiced-up and ready for action.
  • Replaceable battery. Even the best lithium batteries don’t last forever. The Shift was designed to make it easy for you to replace the product’s battery yourself. Waterproof. The Shift is designed to withstand continuous immersion at 3m (9 ft). Every single unit that comes off the assembly line is pressure-tested before it ships.
  • Class Legal. The Shift doesn’t use any GPS technology and it even comes with a static-cling Legalizer Label for use in the most conservative one design classes.
