  1. How do I make the SSC200 agree with other compasses on the vessel, or, in other words, how do I align the SSC200 with the boat? The SSC200 compass is aligned with the vessel by pointing the arrow shown on the top of the compass towards the bow. There are alternative mounting options, which can be found the users manual. Once you have performed magnetic deviation calibration o... Read More
  2. What is an N2KAnalyzer "boat file"? N2KAnalyzer allows you to save information about a particular network for a given boat or vessel into what is called a "boat file". You can read the boat file back into N2KAnalyzer at a later time or you can even send the boat file to Maretron's... Read More
  3. How do I a create a vessel’s NMEA 2000 network file (boat file)? You create, or save, a boat file through the file menu within N2KAnalyzer. First, left click on the "File" menu item found near the top left hand side of the N2KAnalyzer window. Next, left click on the "Save As..." menu item.  A file browser window w... Read More
  4. How do I read a previously saved boat file back into N2KAnalyzer?  You read a previously saved boat file back into N2KAnalyzer by selecting the "File" menu and clicking on the "Open..." menu item. You can only read a boat file back into N2KAnalyzer if N2KAnalyzer is disconnected from an NMEA 2000 network (connectio... Read More
  5. What is true wind? True wind is what the wind is truly doing and it can be computed from the measured apparent wind by subtracting the vessels speed. For example, if the vessel was moving at exactly 5 knots and the wind was blowing in the exact opposite direction at 5 ... Read More
  6. What is ground wind? Ground wind is the speed and direction of the wind referenced to a compass rose, which is different from apparent and true wind which are referenced to the bow of the boat. The apparent and true wind are interesting to see how the wind is affecting o... Read More
  7. Why is the WSO100 wind direction incorrectly displayed on my display? The WSO100 will not show the correct wind direction if it hasn't been aligned with the boat. You align the WSO100 in one of two ways:align the post (there are three posts attaching the top of the WSO100 to the base) closest to the humidity senso... Read More
  8. 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 affected (or deviates from normal) due to the ferrous metals found on the vessel. Fortunatel... Read More
  9. Why is the GPS100 Speed Over Ground (SOG) reading different from the Speed Through Water (STW) reading? Speed Over the Ground (SOG) is the speed of the vessel relative to the surface of the earth. Speed Through Water (STW) is the speed of the vessel relative to the water. It is possible for the STW to be zero while the SOG is 5 knots, for example if th... Read More
  10. Why is the DST110 Speed Through Water (STW) reading different from the Speed Over Ground (SOG) reading? Speed Over the Ground (SOG) is the speed of the vessel relative to the surface of the earth. Speed Through Water (STW) is the speed of the vessel relative to the water. It is possible for the STW to be zero while the SOG is 5 knots, for example if th... Read More
