  1. I navigate using magnetic heading and not true heading; how do I use the SSC200 compass and Maretron’s DSM150, 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 DSM150, DSM200, or DSM250 to display heading in magnetic. To view magnetic heading on the DSM150, DSM200, or DSM250, do the following:Enter ... Read More
  2. 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 "Headi... Read More
  3. 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 (GPS200). If an SSC200 and GPS200 are connected tog... Read More
  4. How do I display the SSC200 magnetic heading on Maretron’s DSM150, DSM200, or DSM250 display? You display the SSC200 magnetic heading information on a DSM150, DSM200, or DSM250 in the following way:Enter menu mode, scroll to "Favorite Screen Setup..." and press < Enter >Scroll to the favorite screen where you would like to view the magnetic h...

  5. What is magnetic deviation? The Earth's magnetic field is distorted or deviates from normal in the presents of ferrous material. These distortions or deviations can be compensated for within magnetic compasses by calibrating them to account for this magnetic deviation.... Read More
  6. What is magnetic variation? The difference in direction between the magnetic North pole (magnetic North) and the direction to the Earth's rotational North pole (true North) is referred to as variation. Variation changes depending where you are on the Earth and can be obtai... Read More
  7. I see that Maretron’s DSM150, DSM200, and DSM250 displays have a SSC200 configuration setting called "Magnetic Deviation Calibration?"; what is this? Maretron's DSM150, DSM200, and DSM250 displays have a SSC200 configuration setting called "Magnetic Deviation Calibration...", which is used to calibrate the compass to account for sources of magnetic deviation on the vessel....

  8. How do I calibrate the SSC200 to account for magnetic deviation? The SSC200 can be calibrated to account for magnetic deviation in several ways; please refer to the SSC200 User's Manual for instructions. It is always best to calibrate the rate of turn gyro before you perform magnetic deviation calibration on ... Read More
  9. I see that Maretron’s DSM150, DSM200, and DSM250 displays have a SSC200 configuration setting called "Magnetic Deviation Status?"; what is this? Maretron's DSM150, DSM200, and DSM250 displays have a SSC200 configuration setting called "Magnetic Deviation Status...", which is used to display information about the deviation table that was stored within the compass when the compass was last...
