If you would like to approve a device please make the requesto to firstname.lastname@example.org sending as much information as possible, and the Technical Committee will review the one.
Previously in SOLING SAILING the ISA Committee agreed at the November 1998 meeting that specific models of digital compasses may be approved if they offer facilities not exceeding timing, heading, and directional memory, and if they do not transmit or receive.
