KVH Autocomp 1000S Heading Sensor - Brand New

I bought this for the 10 hz output to my current autopilot/radar, but decided to install a new Simrad system and their heading sensor instead. This is a brand new KVH Autocomp 1000 S (for sailboats) that was just sitting in a closet collecting dust. Lowest new price I can find online is $330, but I will sell this for $225.


Here is the info from West Marine's website:


The AutoComp 1000 employs KVH’s breakthrough digital fluxgate compass technology to provide precision heading data to an array of systems, including autopilots, GPS, video charts, radars, computers, and other electronic instruments. Designed as a remote sensor, the AutoComp 1000 can be mounted in a magnetically “clean” location (e.g., away from speakers, motors, wiring bundles, and other sources of changing magnetic fields), and its continuous automatic compensation feature ensures that the most precise heading data (within 0.5) is available at all times. The AutoComp 1000 is fully compatible with the NMEA 0183 output standard and a universal interface card is available for use with other interface standards.
Remote sensor with continuous autocompensation ensures reliable heading data at all times


Accurate to within 0.5
Fast 10 Hz NMEA 0183 standard output compatible with other ARPA radars, autopilots, and other electronic systems
