True Wind Speed added to M80s and SeaTalk
 
I want to add wind speed on my power boat. I have boat speed and direction from GPS and compass.

What can I add to give true wind speed corrected by the GPS for Boat speed and heading?

Thanks

A masthead anemometer will give you true wind speed as well as
direction relative to the boat.
