  5. Is the the J2K100 compaible with Crusader engines? The J2K100 can connect to a Crusader diagnostic CANBUS port for J1939 operations. Crusader offers service manuals for several supported engines. Maretron suggests consulting with your engine technician or contacting crusader direct for suggested inte... Read More
  6. Why doesn’t the SSC200 compass transmit true heading? The SSC200 is a magnetic compass, which means that it measures the direction of Earth's magnetic field relative to the magnetic poles (magnetic heading). This is different than a gyrocompass, which measures heading relative to the Earth's r... Read More
  7. 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
  8. What is J1939? J1939 is a Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) networking standard that is similar to NMEA 2000. Both network protocol standards are based on the same hardware called Controller Area Network (CAN) and both protocols use the same message format. The... Read More
  9. How is J1939 different from NMEA 2000? J1939 and NMEA 2000 networks are both based on the same hardware (Controller Area Network (CAN)), and both protocols use the same message format (the messages are actually compatible and can coexist on the same network), however, NMEA uses different ...
