Leaning toward this
but just leaning, have not purchased. (Also - not tied to this store - they just had a good link to it)
The advantage is that your AP will, with a simple plug-in wire, interface with this instrument - good call.
I have the whole (now probably old fashioned, 3 instruments) setup of wind, speed/log and depth hooked to the AP and it all works together. Wouldn't swap.
The SOG function on this unit is also quite cool - you can get button type GPS these days for a few dollars and have the readout on the instrument.
