Re: ST80 Shows No Difference Between True/ Apparent Wind

I agree that something was not properly re-connected. Most problems like this are traced back to the last thing that changed. Very elementary troubleshooting procedure.

Related query.

Shouldn't the instrument use SOG and COG to get an accurate true wind speed and direction? Your knotmeter is affected by current which has no relevance on true wind calculations.

Do any of the manufacturers do this? I am not aware of any.
