Re: NKE wind transducer to which wind display via NMEA 0183?

Hi Alex,
Thanks a lot for the reply. By MFD, do you mean multifunction display? I have one that sits on the tiller and it controls the pilot which can sail by compass, wind angle or rudder but it does not display the wind (even though the Gyropilot reads this information to steer when in that mode.) There is a newer MFD that will do the job but it is 1000. I have a slot for a standard square instrument that is currently free, so could dedicate it to a wind instrument if I can find one that is compatible.
A very helpful marine electronics expert in the UK has mentioned the possibility of using the Simrad IS15 too. I suppose there will be no way of actually knowing unless I test it, but if I go down that route I will update this post as it has been a bit of head scratcher to get this far!

Cheers, Rupert
