"You guys nailed it with this watch. I love this thing for sailing!!
Buttons are perfect, the display is clear, bright, easy to read in direct sun while sailing. The configurations and settings are ideal for us. This is a huge step forward!!"
Midwest Speed Quest has been the USA Distributor for LOCOSYS for the last 10 years. Most of the GPS units sold during that time continue to be in use. If you need parts or service for older GPS units, click here.
The GW-60 GPS is waterproof to 50 meters depth and does NOT need a waterproof case. The user can choose to record files at 1hz or 5hz frequency.No matter what your sport, the data will be immediately available to you at a glance. This includes Current Speed, Top Speed, Best Average Speed for 10 Seconds, Average of the 5 Best Top Ten Second Runs, and Total Distance Traveled. When you finish sailing, connect the GW-60 to your computer to download and analyze your files, place your Routes on Google Earth.
The GW60 can be used as a standard wristwatch for 2 months between charges. When used as a GPS device, the battery life is about 5 to 6 hours.
The GW60 holds 55 hours of data recording at 1 hz setting, and 11 hours of recording at 5hz.
Because the GW-60 records data in Doppler Format, the files from the GW60 will be accepted by all leading GPS Speed Sailing Sites Worldwide. Only LOCOSYS GPs Units record in Doppler Format.
