Re: Ipad as sailing instrument....

I was hoping that the Sailtimer Wind Vane would be on display at the Annapolis Boat Show. When trying to look up the company, I noticed that the Sailtimer Wind Vane is apparently discontinued, and they plan to replace it with the Sailtimer Wind Instrument next year.

Does anyone know the reason for this? Were there problems with the device? I've always been suspicious of solar powered devices (especially ones that are in difficult-to-reach places like the top of a mast). I guess I'm glad I didn't buy this last winter, since it looks like it's an orphan already.
