Monitoring page now shows wind direction with an arrow
Monitoring page now shows wind direction with an arrow:
In this example example, the arrow points in the way the wind is flowing through, meaning the wind is a south southwesterly.
This feature release also corresponded with an upgrade of the Signal K plugin. While that upgrade is not required for this feature to work, it is highly recommended. With this update, wind direction for monitoring is sourced from
environment.wind.directionTrue. This ensures that the wind direction as shown with the arrow is the wind observed above ground so you don't need to spend too much time interpreting it.
environment.wind.directionTruemay not be available on your NMEA network by default. If that happens to be the case, you can easily calculate it using the derived-data plugin.
There are other visual improvements in this update too. For example, on the monitoring page, you can now see the units for all displayed values, which wasn't the case before.
Overall, this update improved the usability of the monitoring page significantly.
