The compass has been an integral part of the life of any sailor for centuries. But who said it doesn't have to keep up with the latest tech trends?
The Garmin MSC-10 is the latest in a new generation of onboard satellite compasses. These compasses not only integrate well with existing navigation systems, but also use the latest GPS technology to determine the position of the boat.
Garmin - the compass you need for sure
The Garmin MSC-10 satellite compass uses GPS data, rather than Earth's magnetic field data, to calculate the boat's heading. Thus, it is not affected by magnetic interference and changes in the earth's magnetic field.
It works with four satellite technologies - GPS, Galileo, GLONASS and BeiDou. Thanks to this, the compass collects and analyzes a large amount of data. This provides extremely accurate bearing and positioning.
The declared heading accuracy is within two degrees. The device also provides accurate pitch, roll and roll data. All of these are ideal for navigating rough waters.
The MSC-10 can be integrated into almost any system on your yacht. It will also be a reliable companion for autopilots that require accurate and up-to-date steering data.
Not single technologies
Despite the fact that the creators of the compass really wanted to try to use the maximum of available technologies, they did not forget about a more conservative approach. So, technologies were used that have already proven themselves.
For example, it has a built-in magnetometer for use in the unlikely event of a temporary loss of satellite signals. Another advantage of the MSC-10 is that it is relatively small and easy to install.
While the Garmin MSC-10 compass won't be the cheapest on the market, it can certainly compete with other brands.
Of course, the main advantages will be unprecedented connectivity to four geolocation systems and autonomy. This, by the way, will allow any yachtsman to simplify his life and any dangerous section of the route. Apart from this, Garmin has proven itself well when interacting with the autopilot.
