The GWS 10 wind sensor puts even more control in the hands of the sailor, allowing you to maximize the performance and speed of your boat with the use of wind vane technology.
The GWS 10 uses a wind vane for detection of wind direction and an anemometer to register wind speed. These measurements enhance your boat’s potential as you adjust your sail accordingly to harness the wind’s strength. Besides delivering wind measurements, the GWS 10 captures barometric pressure and air temperature data. When combined with other sensors, the GWS 10 provides those on board the ability to gather specific wind data such as ground and true wind, wind VMG and track heading.
Simple Interface & NMEA 2000 Connectivit
Combining wind and weather measurement from a single, integrated sensing unit, the GWS 10 installs with ease – providing data output to your cockpit display via NMEA 2000 cable and bus, which powers the unit. The GWS 10 is designed to interface with Garmin’s GMI 10 universal marine instrument, the 4000 and 5000 chartplotter series or any manufacturer’s NMEA 2000-enabled chartplotters and displays.
