You can set an offset, but unlike depth
and speed offsets, I think you do actually need the Maretron display to do that -- I don't think it's in the network.
You should be getting PNGs for the other data in your network -- have you checked? This data will not be displayed by every instrument you have, but I can display it on my Zeuses -- it's listed under "environmental data". And obviously on the DSM250.

Ah yes you are right.
I just checked the manual and it says:
If you do not have a DSM200 or other display unit capable of configuring installation
offset in the WSO100, ensure that the pole mount is oriented as follows. The pole mount base has three small holes for mounting screws and one larger hole for the humidity sensor. Ensure that the small (mounting screw) hole which is nearest the larger (humidity sensor) hole is oriented such that it faces directly forward in the vessel. If you do have a DSM200 or other display unit capable of configuring installation
offset in the WSO100, you may mount the sensor in any orientation and adjust for it by configuring the installation offset appropriately (please refer to the display user�s manual for details).
When I installed the unit the mast was on the ground and I had oriented the unit as per the manual. Then along came the rigger and bent our mast re-stepping. Then we went to insurance
and got a new mast. Then the new rigger transferred all the hardware
from the old mast to the new mast and we stepped.
I had looked to make sure that it was oriented correctly but was thinking it was the humidity sensor that should be facing forward. I see now that it is actually the screw adjacent to the humidity sensor that is supposed to be facing forward. That explains that! Thanks for jogging the memory.
Now I can either go up the mast or apply the offset... if I had a DSM MFD.
