Does anyone know what the AD-10 data format is and what data it includes? In particular, does it include rate of turn? The PG500 is a gyro compass that should provide that data. If so, it would allow an autopilot (B&G or otherwise) to sail better.

AD10 is an older binary heading format. It only carries the heading numbers without any True/Mag flag or other additional data like rate of turn. For your needs, you should use NMEA output for your B&G.
