IDL & True north
Aug 31st, 2018, 9:30am
 
Hi

Just curious to know does the real and F/S INS cope ok with crossing the international date line both east or west bound ?

Also, how does the INS cope with both True & Magnetic north

Regards
Steve

Carousel INS always uses/shows angles relative to the TRUE NORTH. Magnetic north is never used.

The FS gauge has no code related to IDL and I don't know if the real was "sensible" to IDL.
