I don't see that as being something that anyone would make, since you could just have a wind instrument repeater next to your GPS Chartplotter. I'd imagine that the Raymarine gear can probably display wind direction as a little window, if it is tied into your wind instruments, since their more advanced chartplotters can display navigation data as well.
Also, this isn't all that useful if you think about it... you generally know what the wind direction is where you are, and having it on the chartplotter doesn't really add much. A masthead transducer can't help you with anything but local wind conditions. The Raymarine unit can help you with immediate route planning decisions since it is nearly real-time wind data and not exactly local to the boat, but reasonably nearby.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
