Electronic devices are not allowed in my class. Can I still use MAX?
If your MAX isn’t allowed in your class, you can use MAX by turning off GPS (in the menu). Shift tracking, heading, heel and pitch will remain. In the Sailmon App, you can prove that your GPS is turned off. More importantly: MAX is a perfect training tool to improve your feeling on the water. So even on moments, you don’t have MAX onboard you can rely on your training.
Is MAX waterproof? And without ports, how do I change it?
Yes, MAX is 100% waterproof and 100% wireless. It has no batteries, no charging ports. We’ve included Wifi, Bluetooth and inductive charging to make sure it is truly waterproof, without compromising on features. You charge MAX using inductive charging. We include a charging set for you in the box.
How long does the battery last?
We guarantee an all-day battery life (+/- 16 hours) with everything turned on.
How accurate is the data?
The accuracy of MAX is 0.3 meters (under ideal conditions).
Can I see wind data?
Yes, please check our add-ons for MAX here. You can get instant apparent & true wind readings (wind sensor) and speed, depth and wind (NMEA sensors)
How do I mount MAX? And is there a special mount for my boat?
You’ll receive the standard mount set. You can also choose to buy the Mast Bracket Flat Mount. For some boats, we’ve designed special brackets (e.g. Laser, Melges, IQFOIL etc)
Is there a red light function?
MAX is designed for dinghies and sport boats. Because they primarily sail during the day, there is no red-light function.

The MAX in combination with the Ultrasonic Wind Sensor is an amazing training and racing tool to setup your boat in every wind condition. My favorite racing GPS by far.
It is a very good navigation device. I also connected the wind transmitter and the Iphone. I look forward to the solution on the rotating mast.
Fantastic device. Rugged, good display. Readable in all conditions. I have paired up with the ultrasonic wind transducer, works very well :-)
Just perfect - Helena & Carl Emil in 49er FX in Copenhagen - https://vimeo.com/474494792
Awesome instrument and it only going to get better and better with each software upgrade!
Great tool, vey accurate! Definatly recommended!
The display is fantastic, really readable in direct sunlight as well as when overcast. The GPS updates really quickly and provides, a useful insight into the boats performance through the water, still waiting for NMEA compatible wind for all devices (awaiting a bug fix for higher port numbers) as the Max will then become a very useful repeater of other information. Some connectivity issues when trying to use Wifi and Bluetooth, and not all wifi network passwords are supported but all in all great hardware, just waiting for the software to catch up.
The continued evolution of the software, the clear interaction of the developers with the sailors (us) makes this the most future proof electronics available, anywhere.
The MAX is great tool that enables you to keep your sailing performance at its optimum. It helped me a lot finding the right trim with a new jib. Specially in combination with the UltraSonic wind sensor MAX guides you to your maximum VMG. It might be a great weightsafer too. Cause MAX weighs way less than my afterguard and is far more accurate 👍😀
Excellent product and the GPS device that delivers what it promises. I have been using the SAILMON MAX for OK Dinghy sailing during training sessions and improved the speed downwind. The class rules do not allow the use of GPS devices in regattas. In the Dragon, we have tested the device with the same result, and should the class rules allow the use of GPS-enabled devices. The new software update that disables GPS works fine and the battery time has improved a bit. Keep on the good work!
Simply the best!!!
An exceptional device - Dutch design - that really has helped me improve my sailing ability. Love the combination with the wind sensor and as a small open race boart Cairo would definitely recommend.
Super cool device, cannot sail without Max anymore! Every time I go out I learn :-)
MAX is absolutely brilliant. The refresh is so quick, it reminds me of sailing the F50, such good quality GPS systems. It makes the difference on the moth. Absolutely love it.
