Feature request: True Wind Direction

For any instrument or MFD that shows true and apparent wind angle, and has access to vessel heading, show true wind direction (heading + TWA). Extra credit for showing a graph with change over time.

Both TRUE wind Angle (TWA) and TRUE wind Direction (TWD) are displayable items on the instrument page.

Mr. E,

Thanks for your reply.

I see TWD on the instrument page of the TZTL12F (and on the data box), and on the FI-70 (where it's called "ground wind"--a new term for me).

Looking on the instrument page of the TZT9, I see only TWA and AWA, not TWD. However, TWD is available on the data box of the TZT9, which is good enough.
