GPS Compass Systems

Omni Marine offers a range of GPS compass systems for boat operators who require high accuracy compass and heading information. See below to find out more.

Why choose a GPS compass system?

A GPS compass offers many advantages over traditional fluxgate compass systems, at a significantly lower cost than commercial gyroscopic compass units.

The system utilises two GPS receivers which are built into a single antenna module to measure differential GPS position. This allows the compass system to calculate true heading. As the earth's magnetic field is not used as a reference point, true heading is measured without the need to compensate for magnetic deviation or variation. Our GPS compass units provide true heading accuracy of 0.5° or 0.25° depending on the ,model with update rates from 1 second to 20Hz. In the event of a loss of the GPS signal built in gyros and accelerometers will continue to maintain the heading data output with an accuracy of 1° for up to 3 minutes.
