UNCASVILLE, CONNECTICUT (USA) – Leading marine instruments manufacturer Faria® will introduce the European market to the company’s new GPS Speedometer at the 2013 Marine Equipment Trade Show (METS), November 19-21 at Amsterdam RAI, stand 11.411.
The Faria GPS Speedometer is a drop in replacement for a current speedometer and can be made to match an existing instrument dash in a standard 4 inch (85 mm) dashboard hole.
GPS information is gathered from an internal GPS antenna - no external antenna is required.
The GPS Speedometer uses a 48 channel GPS receiver to produce the most accurate GPS information available on the market today. 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. This pointer is driven by a digital stepper motor for increased accuracy and minimized pointer bounce during vessel operation.
