German term or phrase: mit Tochter (in this context)
Hello all!
This is from the specifications for a yacht. These include "Radio Zeeland Compass mit Tochter" and "RZ. Auto Pilot mit Tochter". Does this mean something like "backup system" or "spare", or something completely different!

Many thanks!

Hilary.

with repeater
Explanation:
Have a look the website which is partly in English, partly in German. There are a few instruments "mit Tochter" mentioned and their English equivalent says "with repeater".
