Default ComNav G1 Sat Compass

Does anyone have any experience with the ComNav G1 Satellite Compass? Or sat compasses in general? I would be using it with ComNav Commander P2VS autopilot.

I have some kind of compass or processor anomaly with my Simrad AP26, and was thinking the hell with it, and go with the Sat compass.

I have a 29'7" Stabicraft with twin 200 Yamaha's in Alaska. Thanks.

Your problem could be notherly turning error. It happens at northern latitudes with magnetic compasses. (Fluxgates are magnetic)
A sat compass would not suffer from it.
