Choose a wind sensor

Any word on when you're ready to sell this new wind sensor?   Also, If I have your weather sensor module, how hard is it to switch it over to run the new type of sensor? 

I just passed a milestone in my build last night and had pypilot move my inside helm for the first time, so one of the upcoming projects is to get a working wind sensor. As a long shot test, I had tried to wire in my old masthead anemometer, but alas it didn't seem to work putting out vastly inaccurate wind and direction info.

I had a LCJ Capteurs ultrasonic sensor on my last boat. I loved that thing. No moving parts for the birds to break off. It’s from France. https://lcjcapteurs.com/en/girouette-ane...ent/cv7-2/

It is expensive. But it does come in many different options for connectivity. My current boat has a typical Raymarine whirlybird, and it’s only a matter of time before that thing dies.

Sean is a very smart guy, so I’m also interested in his sensor.

I splashed out on a CV-7 recently and yes, love it! Uploading data to windy ? and gtafana does such a good job with the data. No more fibbing about beating into 60KTS ;Wink
