Shipmate DGPS Chartplotter Simrad CP32 MKII.
Great care has been taken to create the ultimate navigation aid .... both in design and performance. The CP32 MKII is a unique combination of the latest GPS receiver technology and built-in differential* receiver for accurate positioning plus detailed cartography; all in a compact design with a 6" large LCD display in TFT colour or monochrome. For outdoor installation it is recommended to use the monochrome version.
Two units can be connected together forming: The Bridge System one at the chart table for planning and the other at the helm for navigation. Waypoints and routes are transferred from planning to helm via a high speed data link.
The Simrad CP32 MKII chart system
Includes a built-in world chart for rough planning and overview. The choice of chart system best suitable for the Simrad CP32 MKII was carefully singled out to be the C-Map mini cards CF95. The optional C-MAP charts are available world-wide at your local Simrad Yachting dealer
The Global Positioning System
is rapidly becoming the most common system used for navigation and positioning all over the world. Not only for maritime use, but also for land-based applications and aviation. The satellite-based system has been developed and is operated by the US Department of Defence in order to provide an accurate and reliable service, which include a 24-hour global coverage. The GPS system consists of approx. 24 satellites which orbit around the Earth at an altitude of approx. 20,200 km. The satellites transmit perfectly syncronized data. However, depending on the position, the signals will reach the receiver at a slightly different time. By adding the measured time difference to the known position of the satellites it is possible to calculate the ship’s position to within a few meters.
