What are the system requirements for calculating True Wind?

True Wind data (sometimes called True Relative to Boat—is Apparent adjusted for Speed Through Water and Heading) is required for utilization of advanced sailing features found in some Raymarine products. Products supporting calculation of True Wind (not to be confused with Ground Wind) require the following sensor inputs within the system:
- apparent Wind Speed
- apparent Wind Direction
- heading (not to be confused with COG)
- speed through water (not to be confused with SOG)

A very good article addressing the dependency of True Wind on speed through water, not SOG, may be found here.
