SeaTalk compatibility allows GPS data to be
shared instantly by every device on the
SeaTalk bus. A NMEA 0183 compatible
Raystar 120 is also available adding SDGPS
accuracy to NMEA compatible devices.

Satellite Differential GPS
technology… the ultimate in
positioning accuracy.
Developed for precision approach landings in
the aviation industry, SDGPS receiver
technology was first introduced into the
recreational marine industry by Raymarine
and is now incorporated into every GPS
receiver we build. The Satellite Differential
WAAS system consists of a network of
ground-based stations and geo-stationary
satellites that improve conventional GPS
signals via an augmented differential GPS
broadcast. With Raymarine GPS receivers,
accuracy is better than 3 meters thanks to
Satellite Differential and our advanced 12-
channel SDGPS receiver.

Global Satellite Differential GPS
WAAS has been operational for marine
applications since August 2000, providing
extended coverage exceeding current DGPS
systems. Similar to WAAS, Europe is
developing the EGNOS GPS system. An
Asia-based system, MSAS, is also under
development. Once these developments are
complete, worldwide SDGPS will be available.

*The WAAS system is presently broadcasting and being
tested for aviation use. It is expected to be certified by
the FAA in the near future. During the testing and
certification period, continuous service is expected,
however, brief signal outages may occur as refinements
and upgrades are made to the system. For more
