GoPro with GPS Map & Knots topic

Ben Miles posted this 24 October 2018

I have noticed quite a few video's of people sailing their Solo's with an overlay on the film of their speed in Knots and a gps of their course.

Can anyone tell me what bit of kit does this?

Many thanks,

my understanding is that we cannot use gps for racing. and the idea ( lovely boat that it is!) of cruising in a Solo sounds a bit limited.

so assume its people with kit used in other classes using it for demo in the Solo?

Hi Ben,

I think it is the new Garmin Virb XL collects GPS data and can be overlaid on the video.

Hi Ben,

No special hardware needed just an action cam and something to record a gpx file like a phone or garmin you can then use the free Dashware program on your computer to link them together and overlay custom dials like speed, heading a course map etc like in this video
