Designed for avid mariners of all types, from dinghy racers and kayakers to owners of large sail and power boats, quatix is a high-sensitivity GPS navigator marine watch. Marine navigation features include automatic MOB detection, remote control of Garmin equipment, and streaming NMEA 2000 data to a navigating marine watch (MOB detection and NMEA 2000 streaming requires GNT™ 10 NMEA Transceiver, sold separately).
A highly accurate watch, it also includes sailing features, including race countdown timer, virtual starting line, tack assist and tidal information. Quatix can easily set up a virtual starting line between two GPS waypoints. It then combines the starting line with the built-in countdown timer to calculate both distance to the line as well as desired speed and burn time available, which enables you to cross the line at maximum speed at the exact starting time.
Once the race has begun, the watch then switches to Tack Assist mode and indicates whether the vessel is getting headed or lifted based on the optimal tack angle provided. It is also equipped with an automatically calibrating altimeter and barometer, a three-axis compass, temperature sensor and tide information. Plus it also shares data wirelessly with other compatible Garmin apps.
