Navico has released the Precision-9 Compass for use with autopilot, radar and navigational systems from Simrad, Lowrance and B&G.

The Precision-9 Compass combines a solid-state sensor array that measures motion on nine axes. That data is combined to calculate heading and rate-of-turn information.

Navico says accuracy is plus-or-minus 2 degrees, with a pitch and roll angle of plus-or-minus 45 degrees.

The unit is 4.69 inches wide and 1.42 inches tall, with a single cable for NMEA 2000 connectivity. A mounting bracket can be used at the helm or up-mast on yachts with steel hulls to avoid magnetic interference.

Retail price: $645 apiece for the Simrad, Lowrance and B&G versions of the Precision-9 Compass.
