1. You can get a replacement from ebay.com for about $249.
2. You can look for a used ST6001 head
that displays the same information and allows autopilot
control (approx. same cost)
3. You can get a new NASA Marine NMEA
instrument and feed it nmea
data from the chart plotter but make sure the chart plotter translates the data that you need to NMEA (for example, Raymarine
autopilots will output nmea wind
data only if they are fed nmea wind
. If they are fed analog wind data from a Raymarine vane then they will keep it on Seatalk
(stupid vendor lock).
4. Last, you can get a $9 serial/nmea to Bluetooth converter and display the data on your phone
