  1. What is apparent wind?What is apparent wind?
    Apparent wind is what the Maretron WSO100 measures and doesn't necessarily reflect what the wind is truly doing. For example, if the vessel was moving at exactly 5 knots and the wind was blowing in th...

  2. What is true wind?What is true wind?
    True wind is what the wind is truly doing and it can be computed from the measured apparent wind by subtracting the vessels speed. For example, if the vessel was moving at exactly 5 knots and the wind...

    Ground wind is the speed and direction of the wind referenced to a compass rose, which is different than apparent and true wind which are referenced to the bow of the boat. The apparent and true wind ...

  4. Which Maretron products are necessary in order to display apparent wind?Which Maretron products are necessary in order to display apparent wind?
    In order to display apparent wind, you only need a WSO100 and a display capable of showing apparent wind. Maretron's DSM150/250 dedicated NMEA 2000 displays or Maretron's N2KView PC software ...

  5. Which Maretron products are necessary in order to display true wind referenced to water speed?Which Maretron products are necessary in order to display true wind referenced to water speed?
    In order to display true wind referenced to water speed, you will need a WSO100, a DST110, and a display capable of computing true wind referenced to water speed. The WSO100 measures the apparent wind...

  6. Which Maretron products are required for me to display true wind referenced to ground speed?Which Maretron products are required for me to display true wind referenced to ground speed?
    In order to display true wind referenced to ground speed you will need a WSO100, a GPS200, a SSC200, and a display capable of computing true wind referenced to ground speed. The WSO100 measures the ap...

  7. Which Maretron products are necessary in order to display ground wind?Which Maretron products are necessary in order to display ground wind?
    In addition to a Maretron display product (DSM200, DSM250, or N2KView), you will need the following Maretron sensors in order to display ground wind. You will need a SSC200 compass (for vessel heading...

  8. I want to update my NMEA2000 network to include fuel management data, what Maretron devices do I need?I want to update my NMEA2000 network to include fuel management data, what Maretron devices do I need?
    The FFM100 can update your existing NMEA2000 network to include engine fuel rate. Several components are needed to offer you calculative information for Fuel management such as Distance to Empty, Time...

  9. I navigate using magnetic heading and not true heading, how do I use the SSC200 compass and N2KView software to view my heading in magnetic?I navigate using magnetic heading and not true heading, how do I use the SSC200 compass and N2KView software to view my heading in magnetic?
    The SSC200 compass outputs heading information in magnetic format, so you just need to properly configure N2KView to display heading in magnetic. To view magnetic heading within N2KView, click on the ...

  10. I navigate using true heading and not magnetic heading; how do I use the SSC200 compass and N2KView software to view my heading in true?I navigate using true heading and not magnetic heading; how do I use the SSC200 compass and N2KView software to view my heading in true?
    The SSC200 compass outputs heading information in magnetic form and before N2KView can display true heading, the variation must be known. One source of variation is the Maretron GPS antenna/receiver (...

  11. What information does the GPS100 provide?What information does the GPS100 provide?
    The GPS100 provides the following information; 1) latitude and longitude, 2) time and date, 3) Course Over Ground (COG), 4) Speed Over Ground (SOG) , 5) magnetic variation, and 6) satellite informatio...
