Outboard and gps compas


Recommended Posts

How is it possible for a running outboard to upset a gps compass? I went out with my mate in his new runabout. I opened the compass app on my phone and noticed the red end of the compass pointed nearly south. When he shut the motor down the red end swung around and pointed north' as it should. The only explanation I can come up with is that the electronics on the outboard generate a radio interference on the same frequency that the gps compass uses. Any other thoughts? Jim
