The Prism is a stripped down racing compass, developed by some of the world's best sailors. Class legal anywhere an electronic compass is legal, the Prism provides superior accuracy, and a massive display all in an ultralight, compact package.

LIGHTWEIGHT
At a mere 137 g (4.8 oz.) it is the world's lightest racing compass.

AEROSPACE – GRADE HEADING
The prism uses solid state technology allowing it to field sensing and tilt compensation with 3 axis MEMS circuits, meaning there are no moving parts inside, this increases the response and accuracy of the unit whilst also meaning that the heading on the compass will not change if the boat is heeled.

MASSIVE DIGITS
The Prism's sunlight-readable, high-contrast LCD screen features 29.8mm (1.1") tall digits in a font that's optimised for readability. This means that if your boat's under 40ft long you'll be able to mount the Prism on your mast and read it easily from anywhere in the cockpit, even if you don't have perfect vision. The size of the digits also makes it an exceptional choice for trapeaze boats.

ULTRA-WIDE VIEWING ANGLE
With 250 degrees of visibility the Prism's LCD's can be easily read from the helm to the trapeze wire.

FLEXIBLE & SECURE MOUNTING
The Prism mounts to your boat via the slide-in cradle. The Prism Cradle can be mounted to a wide array of brackets, directly to a mast using the centreline holes and the Mast Bracket Hardware Kit, or directly to a bulkhead. We even included recesses in the cradle in case you need to lash your compass in place.
