Digital Yacht have unveiled their TriNav™ GPS160. This is a new, high performance positioning sensor using GPS, Glonass and the new Galileo satellite systems. Therefore, providing exceptional position accuracy and redundancy. Typical accuracy is better than 1m. When set, data can also output at up to 18Hz for smoother plotter track displays. TriNav™ software technology also improves positioning inaccuracy that could occur through spoofing and local interference. The USB model features the GPS antenna with USB cable.
The device has a variety of modes through field programming. This includes single GNSS operation (eg Galileo only) as well as output configurations such as update rate, NMEA sentence structure etc.
The GPS160USB GPS antenna variant ships with a 5m USB cable. It powers itself from the USB source (PC, MAC or Linux). Once you install the GPS160 USB GPS antenna, the host PC creates a virtual COM port so navigation programs can receive positioning data. If a longer cable or the MOB feature is required, it is best to utilise the GPS160 (standard NMEA version) with our USB-NMEA adaptor cable.
