Re: wireless wind indicators

Any wireless instrument has 2 things you need to consider:
- frequency - be sure there is no interference
- battery life - be sure you will be able to change it easily when it will die

Re: wireless wind indicators

We have Nexus, now Garmin. Nexus support was great. Garmin. Not so much. To change the batteries requires a trip up the mast.
