  1. 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 apparent wind while the GPS200 provides Speed Over G... Read More
  2. What is an SSC200? The Maretron SSC200 is a solid state, magnetic compass that is capable of measuring heading, pitch, roll, and rate of turn. The information is broadcast over an NMEA 0183 connection or an NMEA 2000 network where the information is available for any o... Read More
  3. 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 liquid, and once this coil is set in motion (vessel i... Read More

  7. 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
  8. How do I display the SSC200 rate of turn on Maretron’s DSM150, DSM200, or DSM250 display? You display the SSC200 rate of turn 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 rate of turn and press < Enter...
