Navico builds the RC42N Compass in different Versions with different plugs. Since I use the Network with micro-C-plugs I bought the B&G-Version. The plugs or cables can be changed.
The compass transmits with a frequency of about 9 Hz so the update of the vessel´s heading is very quick. It transmits two values for
- magnetic heading and
- turning rate.

Why not use a so called gps compass?
“Please note this product is not suitable for use with MARPA or autopilot systems, this requires a rate compass such as the Gimballed Rate Compass.”
