711C Compass Question

711C Compass Question

Postby WaterWolf2230 » Fri Feb 09, 2018 8:53 am

Hey there,

I'm getting the 711C-OB for its Sabiki Mode which I am integrating into my Simrad EVO3 system and twin G2 Evinrudes. Can someone tell me if I need to have a Furuno compass specifically or will it operate and work with my Simrad compass? I think that it should work with my Simrad external compass but needed to check.

Much thanks,

Curtis

As long as you can get the data to update the pilot fast enough, it should have no problem with the simrad compass. For example 1hz is okay for display of heading but entirely way too slow for an autopilot to use. Heading update should be 5 to 10 hz to make a pilot happy.
