[DG11] SPX30 heading sensor
I have an SPX30 autopilot that uses an M81190 fluxgate compass and a p70 control head. I also have a Quantum I radar and e7 MFD. Can I upgrade the M81190 to a better heading sensor (EV-1?), and if so will that provide better performance of the autopilot and also the radar? thanks

Hi po46camelot

Thank you for your enquiry,

The SPX30 course computer can only operate with the M81190 fluxgate compass, it hass a built in Rate gyro which enables it to output 10Hz compass heading through it's NMEA output port2

However, if you run your SPX course computer on STng instead of SeaTalk, the STng will carry fast heading tthrough the STng network to the e7 and be used by the Quantum in the e7 displays.
