  1. 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
  2. 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....

  3. I see that Maretron’s DSM150, DSM200, and DSM250 displays have a SSC200 configuration setting called "Installation Offset Calibration?"; what is this? Maretron'sDSM150, DSM200, and DSM250 displays have a SSC200 configuration setting called "Installation Offset Calibration...", which is used to electronically align the compass with the vessel. Although there is an arrow on the compass label, it... Read More
  4. I see that Maretron’s DSM150, DSM200, and DSM250 displays have a SSC200 configuration setting called "Invert Installation:"; what is this? Maretron's DSM150, DSM200, and DSM250 displays have a SSC200 configuration setting called "Invert Installation:", which is used to describe the orientation of the compass relative to the vessel. For example, the compass can be mounted upside dow... Read More
  5. I see that Maretron’s DSM150, DSM200, and DSM250 displays have a SSC200 configuration setting called "Rate of Turn Zero Offset Calibration..."; what is this? Maretron's DSM150, DSM200, and DSM250 displays have a SSC200 configuration setting called "Rate of Turn Zero Offset Calibration...", which is used to calibrate the rate of turn gyro found within the SSC200. Rate gyros tend to drift over temperat... Read More
  6. Why does the SSC200 rate of turn indicate that I am turning when I am not turning? The SSC200 rate of turn may indicate that the vessel is turning when the vessel is not turning. You correct this situation by calibrating the rate of turn gyro within the SSC200 using either a DSM200 or a DSM250. To calibrate the rate of turn using o... Read More
  7. How do I display the SSC200 roll angle on Maretron’s DSM150, DSM200, or DSM250 display? You display the SSC200 roll angle 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 roll and press < Enter >Scroll t...

  8. How do I calibrate the SSC200 roll to read zero using Maretron’s DSM150, DSM200, or DSM250 display? You can calibrate the SSC200 roll to read zero when the vessel is sitting flat in the water using a DSM150, DSM200, or DSM250 display. To zero the roll:Enter menu mode, scroll to "Configuration..." and press < Enter >Scroll to "Device Configuration..... Read More
  9. How do I display the SSC200 pitch on Maretron’s DSM150, DSM200, or DSM250? You display the SSC200 pitch 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 pitch and press < Enter >Scroll to "D...

  10. Why is the GPS100 Course Over Ground (COG) erratic at low speeds? The GPS100 computes Course Over Ground (COG) by observing prior fixes or positions and extrapolating the direction of travel from those fixes. If the vessel is not moving, then the GPS100 can not extrapolate the direction of travel and the readings b... Read More
