Jörg Riecher and Sebastien Audigan (Renault Captur) also took the nke GPS Compass onboard.
The brand new satellite GPS Compass (10 Hz), delivers true heading of the boat, a reliable heading worldwide, as well as an accuracy position and speed over ground. This does not require GPS Compass calibrations because it is independent of the effect of magnetic fields on board. This system will be appreciated in areas where the magnetic module can be low and makes difficult measurements with conventional compasses or magnetometers (ex. Regions of the deep south).
The GPS Compass is delivered with two remote antennas to increase GPS accuracy with the largest distance between the antennas.
