Thank you for purchasing the Atlas. The Atlas is the culmination of years of work and is the cornerstone of our vision for the future of sailing.

Press and hold the Power/Menu button to turn the Atlas on or off.

To charge the Atlas, connect the USB end of the included charging cable to a computer USB port or USB wall charger.  Then attach the magnetic end to the charging port on the Atlas. It is recommended to charge your Atlas to full capacity at least once every 3 months.

If the Atlas was previously used in salt water, wipe down the charging port with a damp cloth prior to charging.


Display & Buttons:

The info bar displays device information like Battery Level and Current Time.

Buttons 1 through 4 are contextual and can change function based on what is being displayed. The button bar displays the current functions of each of the 4 buttons. The default and most common functions are: Boat, Pin, Reset, and Start. Boat and Pin are used to ping the race committee boat and pin to set the start line.  Start and Reset control the start timer.

The Atlas displays all of its data in different 'widgets'. Each screen layout is populated by those widgets. You can see the main screen has 4 widgets:  Heading, Speed, Heel, and Trim. Widgets will allow you to customize your own screen layouts with the Vakaros App.

The Home Button allows you to return to the home screen from any menu and is used to cycle through your configured layouts.



In order to mount the Atlas to your boat, you will need to attach the included Atlas mount to the boat. The mount can be attached directly to a mast track, bulkhead, or any flat surface using the two provided screws or by running a velcro strap through the hole in the side.

To attach the Atlas to the mount, first hook the solid end of the mount into one of the slots on the back of the Atlas, then push the Atlas towards the quick-release end of the mount until it clicks securely into place.  To remove the Atlas, pull on the quick-release tab, tilt the Atlas away from the mount, and unhook it from the solid end of the mount.

For maximum mounting security, tie a safety line to the lanyard loop on the bottom left corner of the Atlas.

In order to use the magnetic compass, heel, and trim, the Atlas must be mounted to a fixed location on the boat (i.e. not on a boom or rotating mast).


Care Instructions:

Store the Atlas in its case to avoid scratching the anti-reflective & hydrophobic coating on the glass.

Wipe away salt & salty water when finished sailing.

After using the Atlas in salt water, wipe down the charging port with a damp cloth prior to charging.

To clean the Atlas, use a soft cloth. Dampen cloth with water if necessary.

Don't leave the Atlas outdoors when not in use.

Don't leave the Atlas submerged in water for extended periods.
