In the past, the magnetometer has been the common heading source for GNSS/INS systems in aircraft despite its cumbersome calibration and proclivity to magnetic interference.

Our Inertial Field Application Engineer put the two options to the test in a Cessna 150M aircraft.Read about the findings here
