Digital Yacht unveils GPS160 TriNav positioning sensor with GPS, Glonass and Galileo compatibility and a unique MOB function

Digital Yacht will unveil its TriNav GPS160, a new, high performance positioning sensor using GPS, Glonass and the new Galileo satellite systems at the Southampton International Boat Show, powered by Borrow a Boat.

Designed for exceptional positioning accuracies and redundancies, typical accuracy is better than 1m and data can be set to output at up to 18Hz for smoother plotter track displays. TriNav software technology also improves positioning vulnerabilities that could occur through spoofing and local interference.

The device can be field programmed for a variety of modes such as single GNSS operation (e.g. Galileo only) as well as output configurations such as update rate and NMEA sentence structure.

The GPS160 is available with a NMEA 0183 output (4800, 38400 and 115200 baud programmable) and a USB variant for PC, MAC and Linux. For NMEA 2000 systems, a bundle is available with a Digital Yacht iKonvert NMEA 2000 gateway allowing easy and flexible NMEA 2000 installation without the need for cumbersome drop cables.

The GPS160 also supports a simple external MOB (man-overboard) switch or device. When activated, the GPS160 creates a “synthesised” AIS SART MOB message on its NMEA output which can be interfaced with a local plotter for MOB identification. Most modern plotters support this with a clear MOB icon, and instant bearing and distance information to navigate to the casualty.

The GPS160 is priced at £125 ex vat and is available now. Also available are wireless and SeaTalk variants for older systems.
