  1. 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
  2. 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...

  3. 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
  4. I see that Maretron’s DSM150, DSM200, and DSM250 displays have a SSC200 configuration setting called "Variation Source:"; what is this? Maretron's DSM150, DSM200, and DSM250 displays have a SSC200 configuration setting called "Variation Source:", which is used to tell the compass from where it should receive the magnetic variation for subsequent transmission of the heading (HDT)...

  5. 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
  6. 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...

  7. Which NMEA 0183 sentences does the SSC200 transmit? The SSC200 transmits the following NMEA 0183 sentences or messages:HDG - Heading, Deviation & VariationHDM - Heading, MagneticHDT - Heading, TrueROT - Rate of TurnMAROUT - Maretron Proprietary Output Sentence... Read More
  8. What is the maximum rate at which the SSC200 will transmit heading from the NMEA 2000 port? The SSC200 transmits heading 10 times per second via the NMEA 2000 port.... Read More
  9. What is the maximum rate at which the SSC200 will transmit heading from the NMEA 0183 port? By default, the SSC200 transmits heading from the NMEA 0183 interface ten times per second. This can be changed to 40 times per second in one of two ways: 1) using Maretron's DSM150, DSM200, or DSM250 display (please see the respective display&#... Read More
