[DG] [DG11] ST6001 in the arctic

RE: [DG11] ST6001 in the arctic
Thanks for the explanation of the compass problem.

My understanding is that if we remove the flux gate compass (4 wire analog) the autopilot will look for an appropriate heading sentence in nmea and use that for control.

My thought to test the system before buying a solid state heading sensor is to use a regular gps that will output the required nmea heading sentence, then temporarily remove the fluxgate and see how the system works. If it works then we’ll go the next step to sourcing a new sensor.

Does that sound like a reasonable plan?
