A fluxgate compass is needed for Radar when using MARPA to give better accuracy.

Of course the Radar doesn't need seatalk or other additional 'unit' to communicate with a C series so there is no input option.

I believe that Raymarine recomend using their gyro enhanced Smart Heading sensor to give the best radar overlay and MARPA performance. Its probably a Fluxgate compass with some additional software to give some direct compatability with the Display.
But its another 660
