  1. What is the difference between true wind referenced to ground speed and true wind referenced to water speed? True wind is computed by subtracting the vessel speed from the apparent wind. The vessel speed is either referenced to the water (Speed Through Water (STW)) or the vessel speed is referenced to the ground (Speed Over Ground (SOG)). If the STW is subt... Read More
  2. 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 while the DST110 provides Speed Through Water (ST... Read More
  3. 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 apparent wind while the GPS200 provides Speed Over G... Read More
  4. How do I display the WSO100 true wind referenced to water speed on Maretron’s DSM150, DSM200, or DSM250 display? You display the WSO100 true wind on a DSM150, DSM200, or DSM250 in the following way:Enter menu mode, scroll to "Favorite Screen Setup..." and press < Enter >Scroll to the favorite screen where you would like to view the true wind and press  < Enter ...

  8. Why is the GPS100 Speed Over Ground (SOG) reading different from the Speed Through Water (STW) reading? Speed Over the Ground (SOG) is the speed of the vessel relative to the surface of the earth. Speed Through Water (STW) is the speed of the vessel relative to the water. It is possible for the STW to be zero while the SOG is 5 knots, for example if th... Read More
  9. How do I display the DST100 Speed Through Water (STW) on Maretron’s DSM150, DSM200, or DSM250 display? You display Speed through Water (STW) on a DSM150, DSM200, or DSM250 in the following way:Enter menu mode, scroll to "Favorite Screen Setup" and press < Enter >Scroll to the Favorite Screen where you would like to view STW and press < Enter >Scroll t...
