Navico’s new Precision-9 Compass delivers heading and rate-of-turn information with an enhanced level of accuracy to Simrad, Lowrance and B&G autopilots, radars and navigational systems over an NMEA 2000 connection. The Precision-9 Compass incorporates a sophisticated solid-state sensor array measuring motion on nine separate axes. Data from all nine axes is used to calculate the most accurate heading and rate-of-turn information possible, avoiding common limitations of conventional fluxgate electronic compasses. Once the compass is calibrated, it delivers heading accuracy of ±2 degrees, with a pitch and roll range of ±45 degrees. This compact unit measures 4.69” across and 1.42” tall. An easily adjustable mounting bracket allows it to be installed on any vessel, in almost any location. It also may be mounted directly to any flat surface, and external up-mast installations are possible to avoid magnetic interference from steel hulls. Installation is further simplified by NMEA 2000 connectivity, with a single cable carrying both power and data.
