  1. What is ground wind?What is ground wind?
    Ground wind is the speed and direction of the wind referenced to a compass rose, which is different than apparent and true wind which are referenced to the bow of the boat. The apparent and true wind ...

  2. What is the difference between true wind referenced to ground speed and true wind referenced to water speed?What is the difference between true wind referenced to ground speed and true wind referenced to water speed?
    True wind is computed by subtracting the vessel speed from the apparent wind. The vessel speed is either referenced to the water (Speed Through Water (STW)) or the vessel speed is referenced to the gr...

  3. Which Maretron products are required for me to display true wind referenced to ground speed?Which Maretron products are required for me to display true wind referenced to ground speed?
    In order to display true wind referenced to ground speed you will need a WSO100, a GPS200, a SSC200, and a display capable of computing true wind referenced to ground speed. The WSO100 measures the ap...

  4. Which Maretron products are necessary in order to display ground wind?Which Maretron products are necessary in order to display ground wind?
    In addition to a Maretron display product (DSM200, DSM250, or N2KView), you will need the following Maretron sensors in order to display ground wind. You will need a SSC200 compass (for vessel heading...

  5. Using the N2KAnalyzer how do I recover a device?Using the N2KAnalyzer how do I recover a device?
    The N2KAnalyzer software can restore a devices software using the following method: Select the affected device(represented by a row with light gray serial number shown), right-click ...

  6. What are the Voltage specifications for each Maretron device?What are the Voltage specifications for each Maretron device?
    Maretron Model Device Description NMEA2000 Operating Voltage Engine/Battery Interface SSC200 NMEA 2000 Solid State Compass HW 1.0 9 t...

  7. What sensors does Maretron recommend basic Navigation?What sensors does Maretron recommend basic Navigation?
    A standard Maretron NMEA2000 navigation sensor network consists of the following components: Compass: SSC200 GPS: GPS200 Depth Speed Water: DST110 Weather: WSO100 Display: DSM150 System Capabiliti...

  8. What is an SSC200?What is an SSC200?
    The Maretron SSC200 is a solid state, magnetic compass that is capable of measuring 1) heading, 2) pitch, 3) roll, and 4) rate of turn. The information is broadcast over an NMEA 0183 connection or an ...

  9. Why is the SSC200 compass better than other marine compasses that use fluxgate technology?Why is the SSC200 compass better than other marine compasses that use fluxgate technology?
    The SSC200 compass is better than other marine compasses that use fluxgate technology because there are no moving parts in the SSC200. Compasses using fluxgate technology have a coil floating in a liq...

  10. What information does the SSC200 compass provide?What information does the SSC200 compass provide?
    The SSC200 compass provides the following information; 1) magnetic heading, 2) roll, 3) pitch, and 4) rate of turn.

  11. What messages (or PGNs) does the SSC200 transmit?What messages (or PGNs) does the SSC200 transmit?
    The SSC200 compass transmits the following messages (or PGNs): PGN 127250 - Vessel Heading (Fields: 1-SID, 2-Heading Sensor Reading, 3-Magnetic Heading Correction 4- Magnetic Heading Correction 5-Hea...

  12. Why doesn't the SSC200 compass transmit true heading?Why doesn't the SSC200 compass transmit true heading?
    The SSC200 is a magnetic compass, which means that it measures the direction of Earth's magnetic field relative to the magnetic poles (magnetic heading). This is different than a gyrocompass, which me...

  13. I navigate using magnetic heading and not true heading, how do I use the SSC200 compass and Maretron's DSM200 or DSM250 display to view my heading in magnetic?I navigate using magnetic heading and not true heading, how do I use the SSC200 compass and Maretron's DSM200 or DSM250 display to view my heading in magnetic?
    The SSC200 compass outputs heading information in magnetic format, so you just need to properly configure the DSM200 or DSM250 to display heading in magnetic. To view magnetic heading on the DSM200 or...

  14. I navigate using magnetic heading and not true heading, how do I use the SSC200 compass and N2KView software to view my heading in magnetic?I navigate using magnetic heading and not true heading, how do I use the SSC200 compass and N2KView software to view my heading in magnetic?
    The SSC200 compass outputs heading information in magnetic format, so you just need to properly configure N2KView to display heading in magnetic. To view magnetic heading within N2KView, click on the ...

  15. I navigate using true heading and not magnetic heading, how do I use the SSC200 compass and Maretron's DSM200 or DSM250 display to view my heading in true?I navigate using true heading and not magnetic heading, how do I use the SSC200 compass and Maretron's DSM200 or DSM250 display to view my heading in true?
    The SSC200 compass outputs heading information in magnetic form and before the DSM200 or DSM250 displays can show true heading, the variation must be known. One source of variation is the Maretron GPS...

  16. I navigate using true heading and not magnetic heading; how do I use the SSC200 compass and N2KView software to view my heading in true?I navigate using true heading and not magnetic heading; how do I use the SSC200 compass and N2KView software to view my heading in true?
    The SSC200 compass outputs heading information in magnetic form and before N2KView can display true heading, the variation must be known. One source of variation is the Maretron GPS antenna/receiver (...

  17. How do I display the SSC200 magnetic heading on Maretron's DSM200 or DSM250 display?How do I display the SSC200 magnetic heading on Maretron's DSM200 or DSM250 display?
    You display the SSC200 magnetic heading information on a DSM200 or DSM250 in the following way. Enter menu mode, scroll to "Favorite Screen Setup..." and press enter. Scroll to the favorite screen whe...

  18. Why does the heading coming from the SSC200 appear to be in error?Why does the heading coming from the SSC200 appear to be in error?
    The SSC200 measures the Earth's magnetic field and before it will provide an accurate heading, it must understand how the Earth's magnetic field is effected (or deviates from normal) due to the ferrou...

  19. How close can I get wires to the SSC200 before I start adversely effecting the compass?How close can I get wires to the SSC200 before I start adversely effecting the compass?
    Small wires carrying small currents (less than 1 amp) should be kept at least 18 inches away from the SSC200 and even further if practical where larger wires with large currents need to be even furth...
