Re: Speed/Depth/Wind conundrum
Yes, I think it's better because you're getting 2 displays including a dedicated wind display optimised for the job. The second combi display is not as powerful as a GMI 10 but if you just want to use it to display speed, depth and so on, it's good enough.
Don't forget NMEA is expandable so you can always buy a chartplotter etc later.

How do you like the wind sensor? Any problem with birds fouling the thing up?
