These enhanced capabilities have been designed into the production of all Crescent Vector II products including:
• V101 and V111 all-in-one GPS compass (superseding the V100/V110), a heading and positioning 50-centimeter baseline smart antenna that combines the Crescent Vector II and two multipath-resistant antennas for precise guidance, portability, and ease of installation.
• VS101 and VS111 GPS compass (superseding the VS100/VS110), a receiver with user interface display and two separately-mounted antennas, uses the Crescent Vector II to deliver reliable accuracy affordably and targets machine control and navigation applications.
• LV101 OEM board (superseding and backwards compatible to the LV100), integrates the Crescent Vector II, two GPS antennas, an NMEA 2000 communication processor, single-axis gyro, tilt sensor, and power supply onto a single board and provides precise heading and sub-meter position accuracy, according to the company.

The Crescent Vector II OEM board and all Crescent Vector II products will be available beginning in July through the Hemisphere GPS Precision Products global dealer network.
