Essential Info

The SailTimer Wind Vane is solar-powered and wireless, sending wind speed and direction by Wi-Fi to mobile devices. There are no cables to install down the mast, through the headliner in the cabin and under to cockpit to the helm. Just attach it with 2 screws to the masthead, or with the 2 included U-bolts to a stanchion until the masthead is accessible, and start using it in minutes. It is the only anemometer in the world that can send wind data through the air to an iPad or iPhone.

The SailTimer Wind Vane may look like a simple device, but don't let that deceive you. It has moving parts and is waterproof, but the internal software also leads to some pretty intelligent behavior. The vane spends most of its time asleep but it wakes itself up every 8 seconds to see if anything wants to talk to it. If a user is detected, the Wind Vane stays awake but transmits for just a few milliseconds each time to save power. The vane can actually run for about 65 days on a full battery charge. It can recharge 8 hours of sailing usage with 1 hour of direct sunlight and it's also very sustainable, because it generates its own solar power and the advanced lithium disk batteries have an estimated lifespan of 20 years.

There are two main components: First, the vane with solar panels and a wireless transmitter is mounted up in the wind. It sends a radio signal to a small blue box that receives the signal, and converts it to Wi-Fi. The blue box is powered by two AA batteries (sold separately), which can be alkaline or rechargeable. The vane unit is waterproof and has internal batteries that are recharged by solar panels.

    Can the iphone App provide apparent and true wind speed. This may require the iphone's GPS and compass to be integrated?
