Experience with the solar powererd wind vane? - Journeymen361 - 02-07-2018

I'm currently thinking of replacing the wind vane with the solar powered / battery buffered bluetooth wind vane as offered from http://www.sailtimerwind.com. I like the idea of an more or less hazzle free installation on the mast top (no cables involved) and minimum maintenance requirements at all. Can anyone share experiences with this product, installation process, what about reliability especially with the bluetooth connection (Mast hight on my ship is about 17m) , setup in Openplotter, ...?
