VN-360 GPS-Compass
High-Accuracy GPS
Heading & Position
PRODUCT OVERVIEW
VectorNav introduces the VN-360 GPS-Compass, a
surface mount module that provides an accurate, True
North heading solution for systems integrators seeking
a reliable alternative to magnetic-based sensors.
Incorporating two onboard GNSS receivers, the VN-360
measures the relative position between two connected
GNSS antennas to calculate a heading solution that is
an order of magnitude more accurate than a magnetic
compass. The VN-360 also incorporates a set of 3-axis
gyros and accelerometers that provide pitch & roll measurements and enable the VN-360 to output a continu-

ous heading solution through a temporary loss of GPS.
Alignment in under two minutes (typical)
Designed to provide maximum flexibility to the user, the
Simple one-time setup and configuration
VN-360 supports a variety of GNSS antennas that can
be mounted on a host platform with a separation
distance anywhere from a few centimeters out to several meters. Users can choose a configuration that suits
the mounting constraints of their platform or optimize
the heading accuracy and startup time of the VN-360 to
meet the requirements of their application.
Align™ technology, a set of intelligent algorithms that
eliminate erroneous heading measurements at startup.
SmartAlign™ adds an extra layer of reliability when
initializing the VN-360 in a wide range of operating envi-
