Built to Last
The SpeedPuck is designed for long-term reliability in a saltwater marine environment. The SpeedPuck's caseback screws on and off like the lid of a leak-proof water bottle to reveal the battery compartment. In addition to this, the battery compartment is completely sealed off from the rest of the device's electronics, providing a second layer of protection against moisture.

Fully Compatible with Velocitek PC Software
Two different PC software packages are available to help you get the most out of your SpeedPuck:
Velocitek Control Center is free and works well for customizing the functionality of your SpeedPuck while providing basic data downloading and replay capability.
Velocitek SpeedPlay (available from Velocitek for $49) is a more powerful tool that allows you to quickly download data from a group of Velocitek devices to create race replay animations with map backgrounds automatically imported from the Microsoft Virtual Earth server.
