What is a Steering Repeater?

A Steering Repeater ensures a clear indication of heading information by using a 360° and a 10° compass card. In addition, True / Magnetic indicators provide clear indication of heading source.  The 360° and 10° compass cards provide a graduation of a tenth of a degree.
