Faria debuts GPS speedometer

ADVERTISEMENT

Connecticut-based marine instruments manufacturer Faria introduced to the European market its new GPS speedometer at METS in November. It is a drop-in replacement and can be made to match an existing instrument dash in a standard 4-inch (85mm) hole.



GPS information is gathered from an internal GPS antenna; no external antenna is required.



The speedometer uses a 48-channel GPS receiver. Course Over Ground (COG) and actual heading (compass heading over ground) are displayed on an optional digital LCD. Speed data is shown by an analog pointer driven by a digital stepper motor for increased accuracy and minimized pointer bounce during vessel operation.
