Now there you've got me Robert, because I am not familiar with the fluxgate compass and it's operation. What little knowledge I have of it would indicate that it would be effected by deviation but less than the standard compass as the fluxgate generates it's own magnetic field. I await others corrections, clarifications, or just plain "phooey" on the matter.


Dog,
No digital camera, as yet. haven't you heard? i'm a conservative, i sail for a hobby. my terrestial form of transportation runs on oats!
