Review of Garmin GWS 10 wind sensor Weather Stations by Practical Boat Owner Jan 2009
Garmin GWS 10 wind sensor

Garmins advanced new wind sensor is designed to link up with the GMI 10 marine instrument display, or any other Garmin or NMEA 2000 multi-function display. The GWS 10 monitors wind speed, atmospheric pressure and ambient temperature, making it a mini-weather station.

Its a high-performance unit with a 10Hz output, which means the digital display at deck level will operate smoothly and react quickly to changes in direction or speed. The GWS 10 sensor and GMI 10 display (399.99) can be bought separately, or together for a reduced price of 799.99.

Verdict: It's a fully-functional weather station - ideal if you've got a Garmin display.
