Hemisphere GPS Expands OEM Agreement with Navico - 24/11/2011

Hemisphere GPS, Canada, has expanded its multi-year OEM agreement with Navico. Hemisphere GPS is supplying Navico with the industry's smallest (42cm) GPS compass, which will be privately branded Simrad HS70. Simrad HS70 GPS compass will be sold with Navico's AP70, AP35 and AP50 autopilots for pleasure boats, yachts and commercial vessels.


Based on Hemisphere GPS' patented Crescent Vector II technology, HS70 calculates reliable GPS heading accuracy of 0.75 degree and 50cm GPS positioning accuracy with SBAS corrections while providing heave, pitch and roll output messages through an integrated tilt sensor and gyro system. HS70 supports both NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000 interface standards making it compatible with all connectivity standards found on today's vessels.

Navico has integrated Simrad HS70 GPS compass into its autopilot solutions and is also selling it separately, as a standalone GPS compass, through its dealer network.
