Re: Anonometer hook up

If I am understanding you only have the mast head unit and the wires are the ones coming down from the mast? If this is the case then you will need a head unit to disply or or transmit the readings. Even if Raymarine you would need a black box to connect the mast unit to before sending a signal to the plotter. I am guessing like the other said you might be better off just replacing the whole deal. if you can determine the brand of mast unit you might be able to find a head unit for it on ebay but to show on the plotter you would need NEMA output and possible for raymarine seatalk. Given the age of boat and the 7 wire I am guessing it is an old Datamarine of the like and they did not have NEMA out on their units
