Re: TackTick and NMEA 2000

I just did the review search - and the price comparison.

Crossed it off my list.

I'm going to stick with a ST60 wind transducer (part E22078) at 440 ish bucks the aforementioned E85001 network hub/converter at 50 ish bucks and the ST70 displays along with the e7d as the main MFD.

I really can't see the sense in the ST70 wind transducer at 450 bucks because you also have to buy the transducer pod for another 270 bucks and that just adds something else to mount somewhere (and fail sometime).

It's not like the ST70 is super fast/accurate etc..or I can use that extra millisecond of knowing there is a wind shift or puff..

Wireless isn't worth the extra 1000 bucks in price, interference problems etc..
