Mazzy, I has seen the PB150 but not the PB200 specs are better.
Sailboy, yes its cost more if you just want a wind instrument but if you include the compass, barometer, hydrometer, and GPS the cost falls into line. Plus (remember the Osprey) how many times do you want to replace the head unit? Hooked to a PC the full weather station tracking information may be useful offshore.
Ouickstep, I had forgotten about that aspect of a GPS antenna, maybe that's why the original documentation call for it to be a back-up unit. Maybe they found some way of compensating with the pitch/roll sensor. Nowhere have I seen them mention a sailboat use in their documents, makes me wonder.
