For example, for $GPRMC sentence, it auto calculates: - the True Course based on Start Point and End Points selections - UTC Time based on system time - the distance travelled based on speed selected per hour - the latitude and longitude for current point after travelled distance - magnetic variation of same latitude and longitude - depicts it on map - And generates the $GPRMC.
Jeppesen says that due to an "oversight" on its part, the database did not include a dynamic magnetic variation adjustment for terminal and en route waypoints, an error that could cause the system to calculate erroneous courses and bearings.
At last week's meeting in Boston of the American Geophysical Union, an international team unveiled a map of the minuscule magnetic variations in Antarctica and the seafloor surrounding it.
Being closer to the source also means stronger signals, which is more important in equatorial regions where diurnal magnetic variations (daily magnetic variations due to the sun) can be of the same magnitude as the crustal magnetic signal.
1) Other features include: * AdaptNav[TM] adaptive algorithms that outperform traditional Kalman filter based approaches by providing real-time optimization of compass performance when used in varying magnetic and dynamic operating environments * True North Heading Indication based on Magnetic Variation Correction * 2-D and 3-D Manual Calibration * Sleep Mode * Motion Stabilization * Rapid Initialization * Full Encapsulation "Our navigation sensor GEDC-6 and our DC-4 which are equipped with NorthTek[TM] allow designers to directly interface with real time sensor data and make custom computations specifically for their application.
