    what sort of signal is it outputting ?
    what is the chip you are wanting to feed that signal into ?

    something like this one
    http://www.amazon.com/Wayfinder-All-Terrain-Marine-Digital-Compass/dp/B00005KAPW/

    i want to take the output and instead of/in addition to displaying my direction to the 8-led screen i reuse it as input for my chip

    i wrote a program to will calculate the ship direction according to the current coordinates and direction coordinates and i want it to read both the compass reading to check if its direction is right or not
    also it will read the gps reading to recalculate its direction every specific interval of time to increase the accuracy of the voyage line

    thanks for the help
