Wind Instrument Help

Today I upgraded my firmware on all my systems and I just noticed an anomaly in my wind directions. Everything is reading wind direction CCW. So right now the wind is off my port stern around 8 o'clock. My instruments should be reading 210 degrees but my mini Triton display is reading 150 and my chart plotter is reading -150. The direction arrows are correct but the readings are opposite from what they should be. I can't find any setting to change this.
I have all new B&G wind instruments (508 wind sensor) 2 Triton displays and a Zeus 2 chart plotter. never noticed this before. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
