OLD FLUXGATE COMPASSES?

When I installed my new Furuno Navigation package it came with a new flux gate compass for heading data.

I have 4 more now in land storage

A VDO LOGIC compass
A Sail comp compass sensor
2 Coursemaster heading sensors.

Are any of then worth keeping on board as usable spares since their matched display heads have been removed?

Re: OLD FLUXGATE COMPASSES?

the new one is probably nmea 2000.

considering I have never heard of the other 3. they likely belong in a trash bin.

Re: OLD FLUXGATE COMPASSES?

Ok. that makes sense.
Luckily here in Subic there is a Marine consignment store where I can sell off old stuff really cheap.... Good for beer money

I just hate throwing things out that others could use.Click image for larger version
