Connecting nasa target wind sensor
Good morning

I'm new to all this and only used openplotter to send AIS data to my laptop so far.

I'm more trying to get data from my wind sensor but looking at the wiring I don't think it's NMEA, although my understanding is very limited so I may be wrong.

The unit is wired as follows...

Red = +5v
White = speed
Blue = direction
Black = direction also
Screen = -ve

Is there any way I can get this unit to talk to openplotter?

Any help or suggestions would be very appreciated.

Thank you

Ok thanks, I'll do that.

Is it ok for real world use? It's the only way I can access my AIS as it has not screen of its own.

V0.8 has been really reliable all last season...
