another beta image release
When I send GPS and wind data from OpenCPN to the Pypilot the Wind "option" is appearing and leaving randomly.
I am using the TCP connection because the forward NMEA under config from pypilot does not work.
I am sending the RMC and MWV sentence every second, the GPS works the Wind as mentioned above.
it looks like I have it  working now, the Wind NMEA did not have a checksum I did not notice that because for OpenCPN it was no problem and because the Pypilot recognized it apparently sometimes I did not question that would be the problem.
Anyway I have now added the checksum to the winddata and now it seems to work.
pypilot discards nmea data with invalid checksums to avoid reading wrong data

because maybe a byte here or there is missing in a nmea stream, it could read 26 degrees instead of 216

What kind of wind sensor? Mine outputs at 10 or 20hz so dropping a few won't easily timeout. I think the timeout for nmea data is 4 seconds
