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 need to properly configure N2KView to display heading in magnetic. To view magnetic heading within N2KView, click on the "Units Setup" tab, and select "Magnetic from the "Heading/Course/Bearing" setting.
