Best marine satellite compasses for 2021, part 2
11/22/2021

Last week we told you about several satellite compasses that provide extremely accurate positioning and heading information for onboard equipment such as multifunction displays, chartplotters, autopilots, etc. Below are five others that deliver that information in spades along with additional data. A few augment their capabilities by tapping into Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) in addition to GPS, such as Europe’s Galileo, Russia’s GLONASS, Japan’s QZSS and China’s BeiDou.

Rolling out these products is an exercise Marine Electronics Journal does every year as part of our Buyers’ Guide. It works like this: We ask the top manufacturers to identify the one model they produce in a particular category (17 in all) that they consider to be their Best & Brightest—not necessarily the most technically advanced or newest but rather the one they rate highest in the product line for one reason or another. Could be the functions and features it offers, or maybe it breaks new ground in maximizing effectiveness or utility, or maybe it’s the most popular as measured by sales to boaters. Last week we rolled out the first round of satellite compasses.

SI-TEX V200

The new SI-TEX V200 GPS Satellite Compass optimizes accuracy and performance for today’s most advanced marine electronics systems. The multi-GNSS V200 features a 424-channel receiver that uses all known satellite systems, including GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou and QZSS; optional Atlas GNSS global correction service provides sub-meter 30-cm (11.8-inch) RMS accuracy. The 13.7-inch antenna provides 0.75° heading accuracy and onboard spectrum analysis for excellent in-band and out-of-band interference rejection. Integrated gyro sensors deliver fast heading reacquisition, smooth heading readings and reliable 1° per minute heading for up to 3 minutes after temporary loss of GPS. Built-in tilt sensors provide pitch, heave and roll data. Features 60-second cold-start acquisition and 100° per second maximum rate of turn. Available in both NMEA 2000 & NMEA 0183 versions.
