- Compact unit with L-bracket allows flexible installation
- Automatic magnetic field distortion correction
- Provides precision heading data to Furuno CAN bus devices (NMEA -2000)
How it works:
Install the PG-700 and go to sea (Open water). Activate the calibration function and turn your rudder e.g 20 degrees to starbord. Circumsail 2-3 times with your boat (1 round should take approx. 3 minutes). When you hear an alarm the unit is fully calibrated.
You will see amazing alignment between the PG-700 course and the course shown by e.g. a satellit compas and a GPS.
