Convert Apparent wind and boatspeed to true wind

I read somewhere that someone is working on a plugin for this... nmea2000 network has all information available, but the true wind speed and angle calculation is done at the instrument....thus open cpn does not dispaly true. This may be only on raymarine nmea 2000 (seatalkng) networks ...and related to i60 wind instrument.
Thanks for any news

Re: Convert Apparent wind and boatspeed to true wind

Big Tom is building a sailor's tool which calculates True from Apparent data along with a number of other features for informing the skipper about performance.
