Garmin Italy, a company of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), a world leader in satellite navigation, today announces the MSC 10 marine satellite compass with multiband GNSS and a fully integrated heading system , for improved GPS accuracy in all conditions.
Using both L1 and L5 GPS frequencies, along with multi-constellation support (GPS, Galileo1, GLONASS and BeiDou1), the MSC 10 provides truly incredible position accuracy2 and course data with deviation of less than 2 degrees.
Thanks to the 10Hz position update rate, it offers better and more detailed tracking information. In addition, using satellite signals as well, the new MSC 10 has been designed to eliminate magnetic interference that can disturb the accuracy of heading information.
MSC 10 is easy to install and can be used as a primary heading and position sensor on multiple systems, including the most advanced autopilots. In addition to the bow, the MSC 10 will also provide reliable and accurate information on pitch, roll and sway, even in rough sea conditions, directly to a compatible Garmin chartplotter via the NMEA 2000® network.
In case the satellite signal is weaker, the accuracy of the position will be supported not only by the integrated GPS sensor, but also by the reserve magnetometer3.
The new MSC 10 is compatible with a wide range of Garmin chartplotters, including the GPSMAP® 8400 series, the GPSMAP 723/923/1223 series, and the GPSMAP 1022/1222 key-operated series.
It is available from the second quarter of 2021 at a recommended retail price of € 999 including VAT.
