6 GPS Position accuracy (no SA) < 3.0m
7 Fast start-up times
8 Integrated DGPS source including WAAS, EGNOS

Both the HS80A has two IMO compliance certifications which is a big advantage for Simrad customers. A separate IMO compliant antenna is not required as the compasses meet both navigation and heading function approvals.
Integrated Gyro and tilt sensors deliver fast start-up times and provide heading updates during temporary loss of satellites.
The HS80A is supplied with NMEA 2000 as the standard interface, but can be used as a NMEA 0183 device with an optional cable.
