Configuring the Heading Source of the Wind Gauge

You can specify the source of the heading displayed on the wind gauge. Magnetic heading is the heading data received from a heading sensor, and GPS heading is calculated by your chartplotter GPS (course over ground).

  1. From the wind gauge, select Options > Edit Gauge Pages.
  2. In the window on the left, select Compass Gauge.
  3. Select Heading Source, and select an option:
    • To use heading data received from a heading sensor, select Magnetic.

    • To use heading data calculated using GPS, select GPS.

    NOTE: When moving at low speeds or when stationary, the magnetic compass source is more accurate than the GPS source.
