Using Audio Only and the Coxmate GPS Units

A popular combination for rowing and dragon boat programs is the Audio/GPS combo.  The Audio only unit is a great value, high quality unit compromising of the latest in battery technology and the best possible amplification componentry, providing outstanding clarity and volume over varying applications.  Combined with the ever popular GPS unit you have a powerful combination of reliable amplification and an endless stream of information on the performance of your crew.  Included is the Coxmate PC Analysis Software allowing you to download, analyse and assess the performance of your crew.  This software is a great resource for any athlete or coach wanting to improve.

Ultimately the benefit of having two different units is that both are optimised for a specific purpose and there are no compromises on the quality of the unit.  Sessions that do not require monitoring of workload do not necessitate having the GPS unit on board and the coach is able to decide who has information to what resource.  This provides opportunities for the rowers to have access to information while allowing the coxswain to concentrate on their steering or calls.  At Coxmate we believe offering this flexibility reflects the varying training methodologies employed by coaches and provides provision for the resources to be used in different ways to optimise training at all times.

When you look at the value for money equation and what you are getting when compared to our competitors you are provided with an opportunity to go beyond strokes, rating and time for less money or to provides more information to coaches/athletes/crews for the same amount of money.

A common addition for rowing programs is the use of an additional GPS unit for the stroke seat in the boat.

Both can be purchased here as a combo deal.  We are happy to offer bulk quantity discounts for large rowing programs looking to purchase multiple units.  Please contact us for a quotation.
