6.5 Alignment Error Correction
In order to obtain correct heading data, the existing alignment error (i.e.
the angular difference between the compass orientation and the vessel's
fore-and-aft axis) must be determined and the required correction
applied. Alignment error is 0° if the sides of the compass housing run
exactly parallel to the vessel‘s longitudinal axis and the back of the
housing points dead ahead. The alignment error correction is carried out
electronically by setting the correction value in the Service Setup 1.
