Had the same argument with Raymarine tech people at the Annapolis show a few years ago. Same crappy excuses. The SOG is on the data bus but would require a firmware upgrade to use it in the calculation of true wind speed and angle and they had no interest in the upgrade.
I bet this is a trivial fix that someone could even do on their own. It would likely literally require searching the firmware binary and replacing STW with SOG. I think the format of data is the same, so that would be the only thing.
