Digital Yacht unveiled their TriNav™ GPS160

Updated: Dec 29, 2021

Digital Yacht have unveiled their TriNav GPS160, a new, high performance positioning sensor using GPS, Glonass and the new Galileo satellite system 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.


Interfacing Options for NMEA Varients

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

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.


Supports MOB function.


The GPS160 also supports a simple external MOB (man-over-board) 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 pricing starts at €165 ex vat and is available now.

Also available in wireless, NMEA 2000, SeaTalk 1 and USB variants.
