Default Re: Raymarine SR100 Sirius Weather

marinerjoe ... if you turn ON the wave height, you will be unable to see the surface temperatures. That's because they are both color features, and the SST is on a layer below the wave height. I keep the SST on, and the wave height off. If I want to check it out, it's a simple matter of turning it on, giving a look, and then shutting it down. SST is more important to me. Joe
Joe, Thanks for the info. I will be able to play with the settings after installation. Can't wait.

Irish Mist ... wave height is not available for Lake Michigan. In fact, open water forecasts are not available either. The near shore forecasts are hit and miss, one weekend we would get them the other we would not ... a "soon to be released" software update for the E-series. As for surface temps, wind and pressure - yes we were getting all that and it is great.
That's good news! Thank you. Currently running v4.29 and will keep an eye out for the next version.
