|A compass that delivers extremely accurate readings because it has a fully integrated magnetic correction facility. A similar design, also made by SIRS, is used by many civil and military aircraft manufacturers world-wide. The Navigator is ideal for use as a main compass on small Aircraft, Gliders or Microlights. It even gives accurate readings when used in cars and off-road vehicles. The adjustable mounting bracket allows the compass to be mounted in a variety of positions. This optimises visibility and improves accuracy.|
Went in with the same mounting holes at my mid 70’’s Airpath compass. Once mounted it was fairly close already, with headings. For me this was a better option than overhaul of the old compass.
Headings are clearly legible (perfect for aging eyes) and the blue LED backlight is perfect at night. I would buy this one again.
I’ve installed this compass in my RV-14. The quality for manufacturing seems excellent. I haven’t swung the compass or used it in flight. So, the true test will be when using it in flight. This is the second compass I’ve purchased the previous unit was installed in a Rans S7S. In that installation we had difficulty locating the compass where it wasn’t effected by the steel tube structure. This compass with its multiple mounting options made it possible to find a location that allowed the compass to read accurately.
If compass tilted parallel to th dash, it will not absorb the vibration and is almost impossible to read. Tilt down work good.
The height is 3 inches.
