Fluxgate Compass

I have Tacktick instruments on my boat. My question is, can I parallel into my fluxgate compass for my autopilot and run the parallel leads to the Tacktick sending unit? Or do you have to have a seperate fluxgate for each unit?

Bob—

It depends on what signal outputs the fluxgate compass puts out and whether they're compatible with the fluxgate compass that the TackTick hull transmitter is expecting. It would help if you said what autopilot you have.

BTW, I have the TackTick gear on my boat, so I am quite familiar with it.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
