This start pack provides everything that the boat owner needs to monitor the key navigational variables of wind, depth and speed. At the core of the system lies the WSI connection box, which receives by cable from the transducers real time data on depth, boat speed and water temperature. At the same time the WSI receives via a wireless radio link wind speed and direction from the wireless wind transducer. The information is then processed and sent via a single cable to a Sea Data multifunction display, where the user can select the preferred combination of data readouts.

Comments about Nexus, A Garmin Company NX Start Pack 1:
Looking for replacement wind & speed intrument for cruiser/racer. This unit had a good price point. Instrument is functional, but I'd recommend getting the upgraded speed transducer. Unit helps with refining trim, but I don't think we're doing 14 Kts in a 20 kt wind on a J-30. Screen is difficult to read depending on angle of the sun. I'm neutral on a recommendation.
