Question Electronic Weather Station Units

I have a question for some of you who might have a weather station unit onboard their vessel?

I'm posting a link to a site that sells them. Do you think this model or the other models listed on this site works decently onboard a boat out at sea?

The most valuable part of the electronic forecaster is the one that displays pressure history to a proper scale. I have a proper (and accurate) barometer, but keep considering the purchase of one of these (but higher priorities have delayed it so far)

would also only go for one with pressure-history.
Wind is unnecessary, since you can not install the moving part anywhere.

2 remote Temperature sensors are cool, like one for the engineroom, one for the master cabin.

Also here in Europe we use the Dcf77 timesignal, so you do not have to adjust for daylight-savings.

If you have a smiliar signal, make sure that you can program an offset, if you want to use UTC (like for marine radio)

My unit has cost me less than 100bucks and does fine so far.
