What are the benefits of connecting the Argus to an HSI, remote DG or slaved compass?
The Argus obtains all its position information from the Loran C, GPS or multisensor navigation system. The navigation system computes its ground track by calculating the difference between successive position fixes. Because the successive fixes are “filtered” by the long range navigation system, a change in the aircraft’s direction normally requires computing several position fixes before the system’s ground track corresponds to the aircraft’s new direction of travel or movement. We have found by experiment that GPS provides a much faster track update than does Loran. While maneuvering in a traffic pattern or making rapid heading changes, the processing lag of the long range navigation system may delay map orientation. By connecting the Argus to an HSI or remote DG, the orientation of the moving map can be corrected almost instantaneously. If you already have an HSI or remote DG, chances are that it is compatible or can be modified to be compatible with the Argus. If you do not have a
