Hi boat tech people,

 

Should I be able to see Heel angle from an RC42 compass on the NMEA network?  I can't find it anywhere in the settings... hoping it's a different name?

 

Solution is Triton2, AC12, Zeus2, RC42

 

Thanks

No. Rc 42 is a rate compass, no roll pitch yaw, you need a precision 9 for that.

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

Awesome, we have precision 9. Will have to setup heal angle.

Will an AC12 benefit from the Precision 9?

Hell yes. Its the single best update you can do without replacing the entire AP. Much more stable steering, as the precision 9 outputs heading corrected for roll pitch and yaw, and is ALWAYS accurate to within 2 deg, regardless of vessel motion.
