Standard Horizon Wind Instruments

SH stopped making wind/speed/depth instruments about a year or two ago. They are concentrating on gps/chartplotters/radar/and communications (VHF,SSB)
I have a SH chartplotter (which works very good) a SH depth/speed and a Raymarine wind (ST40) all these instruments can be linked together via NEMA . If you are in the market for an inexpensive wind unit, look at the raymrine ST40

Standard Horizon Wind Instruments

mike;
i guess what l''m saying is that they are not providing support for the customer base they established and they adverised that they offered lifetime service.
No problems with my chartplotter either...love it..but when the time comes to service it will they be there?

Thanks for the post. I understand your frustration with Standard and will personally consider this when I make future purchases.

Re: Standard Horizon Wind Instruments

Thats an 8yo thread! So that puts Standard Horizon instruments about 10 years out of production (I know I had one in my boat as well)...

I went with Simrad devices, which use SIMNET, that is also NMEA 2000 compliant. So far I really like them.
