GPS160 TriNav GPS Technology Meets Classic Lifeboats

The GPS160 is Digital Yacht’s latest GPS, Glonass & Galileo positioning sensor which offers a variety of output modes and formats including NMEA 0183, NMEA 2000, SeaTalk (for older Raymarine systems) and wireless for tablets and iPads.  Its TriNav technology can amalgamate all the individual satellite system positioning data to offer sub 1m accuracy and super fast 20Hz updates for fast plotter redraw and near instantaneous course and speed information

It’s not often that we get enquires from historic ships for the latest positioning technology, but ex lifeboats, Joseph Soar and Grace Paterson Ritchie were looking for the best positioning system to drive the DSC functionality of their multiple VHFs.  They choose the TriNav sensor so they’ll no excuses for getting lost going forward!  These are still active, seagoing vessels vessels and used at events around the UK and Ireland to promote the work of the RNLI and its amazing history.  It’s great to see the latest GNSS technology on these historic vessels.
