GeoHaye,

Is it possible to include wind angle on WindAlert/Global iWindsurf. WSW is nice but for speedsailing purposes, the precise angle would be preferred!

Much appreciated,
Kevin

Could the global iwindsurf change the wind direction symbol for the individual wind sensor pop ups ? Put the wind direction in numbers in the middle and place the wind direction indicator (smaller to accommodate for similar space) on the outside of the compass. The current wind direction icon seems counter intuitive. Otherwise, good work on the upgrade.

Which is it ? 10 or 32 degrees? My eye always wants to go to where the arrow is pointing. Wouldn't it work better if the arrow was on the outside of the compass circle?

I agree, point should be in to the wind.

Isn't the number in the center of the circle represent wind speed and not angle?

The way I see it, the arrow illustration says the basics pretty clearly. The arrow shows a NNE direction of the wind on the compass. It's oriented to show the direction it's coming from relative to the spot. The number in the center is the wind average. Other pertinent details are reflected below. Simple, but clear.
