      Since there has been emails about this topic, namely how to configure a GPS compass and use it with the ADCP, I am attaching a document that was prepared by James Fountain (USGS).  It is quite thorough.  In addition, in the USGS Hydroacoustics Forum there are several discussions about GPS compass.  One thread is here:  https://simon.er.usgs.gov/smf/index.php?topic=1443.msg4788#msg4788.

      I should point out that Hemisphere no longer sells the V102.  The V200 similar to the V102 in terms of the heading error.

        Great. Thanks. NVE will probably buy a vector gps quite soon, but I need to find out what the advantages and disadvantages are. I hope that using vector gps means I will not need to spend half an eternity trying to calibrate the adcp compass any more.
