    Re: Fluxgate compass
    From: Dan Allen

    I had a pair of magnetic fluxgate compasses for my Robertson
    autopilots.  The adjusting process was to put the system into
    a calibration mode and then proceed to steer the boat in a large
    360 degree circle at constant speed.  When the circle was completed
    you pressed a button and the electronics completed the process.

    In referring to Bowditch chapter 6 concerning compass adjustment, I would
    like to know if this applies to electronic fluxgate compasses.  Does anyone
    here have any experience with this or could refer me to other references?
    
    Thank you,
    
    Craig
