Description

When we started brainstorming about the ProStart, we asked sailors which functions they actually use on the SC1, the predecessor to the ProStart. What was surprising to us was that no one used VMG function and everybody used the distance-to-line function.
A light bulb went off in our heads and we decided to design the ProStart around the distance-to-line function. Every bit of our effort was focused on making the distance-to-line feature easy to use, effective and communicate clearly.
The result is the best distance-to-line tool ever.
