Simrad HS60 / HS70/ HS80A Satellite Compass


The  Simrad HS60 Satellite Compass provides heading, position, heave, roll and pitch information to Simrad autopilots, navigation and AIS transponder systems over an NMEA 2000® interface, and offers a single-unit replacement for both fluxgate compass and GPS receiver.

  • Provides heading, position, heave, roll, and pitch
  • NMEA 2000® connectivity
  • 2 degree heading accuracy
  • 1 m (RMS) differential positioning accuracy
  • SBAS compatible for enhanced accuracy (WAAS, EGNOS, MSAS, etc.)
  • Accurate heading for up to 3 minutes during GPS outages
  • Small form factor

*The HS70 has reached end of life, but is still being supported. Reach out to a customer representative for more information and replacement products.*

The Simrad HS70 Satellite Compass brings a series of new features to a traditional heading sensor including heave, rate of turn, pitch and roll output. The HS70 uses SBAS (WAAS, EGNOS, MSAS, etc.) for differential GPS positioning providing a low cost, yet highly effective heading and position based smart antenna. The HS70 delivers extremely time-to-first-fix, and excellent in-band and out-of-band interference rejection.

  • Provides heading, positioning, heave, rate of turn, roll and pitch
  • SimNet, NMEA2000 or NMEA0183 communication
  • 0.75 degree heading accuracy in amazingly small form factor
  • Differential positioning accuracy of 1.0 m, 95% of the time
  • SBAS compatible (WAAS, EGNOS, MSAS, etc.)
  • COAST™ technology (with integrated gyro and tilt sensors) maintains differentially- corrected positioning for 40 minutes after loss of differential signal.

The Simrad HS80 Satellite Compass is designed to provide reliable heading, ROT and position information to Simrad Autopilots.

  • Type-Approved as a primary positioning AND heading device
  • Compatible with MX420 and MX5XX family of CDU’s
  • Stand-alone automatic operation (no black box required)
  • Pitch, roll and heave as standard output
  • Heading accuracy <0.5° rms with gps
  • Heading updates 1-20 Hz
  • Differential positioning accuracy of <1.0 m, 95% of the time
