When you click on the wind or waves icon it provides both bits of information (see below for example pop-up box info). In fact, anywhere you left-click on the chart will provide current wind/wave information for that spot (if available). The icons are what provide a visual representation of the wind and wave status. To get the predictions, press the rotokey and choose animate; if you don't see an animate "finger", press and hold the rotokey until you see full-rotokey mode enabled across the top of the screen, then choose animate. When you do, you'll see the wind and wave icons move representing the predicted change. There is no "written" forecast option available.
The Waves layer depicts wave height, with a dark blue arrow whose length increases with wave height. To find wave information place the cursor on a wave symbol and press the left-click button.
Select how to show the wind forecast. There are two types of wind icon styles: Vane feathers and Plain colors. Vane feathers also show you wind speed and direction, but give you more details about the wind speed per the description shown below. The description is shown in the BBWX2 Sirius Satellite Weather Reference Manual for NAVnet 3D on page 5; here's a link to the manual: http://www.furunousa.com/ProductDocumen ... t%203D.pdf
Example pop-up box info:

Wave Direction 141.5 M

Place cursor on a wind icon or anywhere on a body of water and hit the left-click button to
show wind and wave information for that area.
